Perkasie is a wonderful place to live. My daughter refers to it as Fantasy Island. Where else is there a parade for the opening day of Little League baseball? Yes, I know it's not perfect, but with a vigilant council, we can continue to maintain and improve Perkasie.
No one likes taxes, and the council has done a wonderful job of managing costs and not raising taxes for multiple years. Much of the additional revenue to offset rising costs has come from new development, new residents and new businesses. We want to keep that trend, but don't want it to get too far off track. We don't need/want 500 new apartments just for the purpose of raising revenue. Roads and repaving is going to be a major challenge for costs in the coming years. We want to continue to find ways to cut costs and reduce expenses while maintaining a high quality of life. I intend to work with council to continue those efforts.
For many years I traveled extensively for business. When our kids were younger, we were involved in little league, band parents, school activities/transportation etc... I'm now in a position where I'm rarely traveling (except to visit grandchildren) and I now have the time to participate in the community. My financial background will contribute to the council and the borough.
I have been on the Perkasie Council for two years and many years ago was on the Chalfont Planning board and Chalfont Borough Council. I have served on Church boards / board chair etc.. As noted before - my financial background will be an asset for the council and the borough.
