5 Should you be elected, what are three specific areas you’d like to change, address, improve or further research, and how specifically would you go about it?
1. Euclid has been hit hard by the collapse of the housing market as many communities in NE Ohio have. I would like to focus on the programs that remove blighted housing and ensure that bank owned properties are maintained to local codes. 2. I will continue to support and would like to improve the Recreation Department. Well run recreational programs keep families involved and active in our city which fosters pride in our community. 3. I will work with the Economic Development Department and concentrate on attracting new business to Euclid. Near railways, freeways, airports and waterways, Euclid is logistically ideal for all types of business. With the right incentives and marketing strategies, Euclid can become the center for manufacturing “Green Technology” products.
Whether for past accomplishments or future goals, why should voters elect you?
I believe in our community and want to see it prosper. I know we have the brain power, the talent, and the spirit. Leadership must inspire and direct this talent. I will make that happen.
