Policy Positions

I bring a unique perspective to the Salem City Council if elected. Not only would I be the only woman on Council, but my educational background, years of business management and versatile experience will enable me to make the fiscally responsible decisions necessary for the City of Salem. In running the City like a business, it’s important to examine expenses to see what can be cut or reduced and to look at revenue streams to see what/how they can be increased. A lot can be done by thinking outside of the box and being open to change.

It is important to encourage economic development in the City of Salem by creating an environment in which people want to do business. Businesses, when considering where to locate, select communities that are vibrant, with a high quality of life for their employees to live, work and play.

So, why run? Because I…

* am Fiscally Conservative
* see a critical need for improving Salem’s infrastructure because of new developments and years of deterioration (storm water drainage, streets, water system, structures: Civic Center, Moyer Field, schools, etc.)
* will work to hold our government accountable for promises made and money spent

* support technical training in our schools, attracting companies to an employable workforce

* draw more businesses to Salem and retain those here by providing incentives and enhance business/city relationships
* manage your tax dollars responsibly
* believe Salem citizen’s voices should be heard

I am from a family employed by (and with deep roots in) Salem, who realizes that the dedication and energy brought by Salem City employees and citizens is why Salem continues forward.
