____My over 35 years of experience in business and over 22 years in local government gives me the
experience to be able to represent the people of this county with confidence. We need fair representation
through out the county seeing how all three of the commissioners all live with in 3 miles of each other on
the far west side of the county. All too often our political leaders become disconnected and isolated from
the people and ideals that put them in office. We need leaders that can stay grounded and are willing to
put the needs of the community in front of ego and political agenda. As your choice for Lake County
Commissioner, I will represent you and our community with integrity, honesty and fairness for all.
