One of my main goals as a Borough council member is to improve access and inclusion to our Borough council meetings for our residents - I would like to start implementing a live stream video feed of the Borough meetings for those residents who can’t physically be present but would like to be informed and involved.

Qualifications for Office I am retired from 32 years of service as an Intelligence Analyst with the Federal Government in a management, supervisory position. Since my residency here, I have been actively engaged within the Borough of Delaware Water Gap and Monroe County with civic affairs and community volunteering. Serving in a volunteer capacity as the Emergency Management Coordinator afforded me an opportunity to learn a substantial amount about the Borough and its relation to Monroe County affairs. My background as an analyst, researcher, lends to problem solving abilities. My love for this community and the people within it is the driving reason I am stepping forward to serve.
Having served as the emergency management coordinator, and having worked in law enforcement, I have a continued concern for community safety and response to emergencies. Communication with and connection to county and state government systems is important.
