Community/Public Service Mayor of Derby Kansas
Address 813 Rough Creek Loop Derby Kansas, 67037

What you feel is the most pressing issue is in your City?

Continuing to not raise taxes but maintain our quality of life and services. Storm Water issues continue to be a great concern.

Several smaller communities are being affected by the cost of providing local EMS services and other emergency services, how do think these issues should be addressed?

County Services are in the best position to support these needs.

Recent storms have created serious problems in towns surrounding Wichita by creating flooding and other damages that have created unplanned expense to the citizens and the cities. Would you consider raising taxes to offset some of this expense or are there other ways to can see they could be paid for?

Raising taxes would not be my first choice. I have always been impressed by neighbors and organizations coming together in a crisis. Some issues will take long range planning and financing to overcome.

How important is it to maintain public schools in your city?

Public education is very important to me. It is the base line for young people to grow from. Our teachers in Derby do a wonderful job.

If elected, what strengths do you feel you can bring to the position?

Experience, I have been the Mayor of Derby for four years and involved in city government for over ten years. I bring a passion for helping people. I think I'm a better people person than I'm a politician, and I'm OK with that.
