There are several issues we face in Warminster, the most important being our township's serious financial crisis and potential bankruptcy. Because of this financial crisis, police staffing is below the recommended levels to protect our community with no plan to address the safety of our police officers, residents, visitors, etc. Open space was developed, school parcels sold to developers below market value, local streets are in disrepair, and our parks inadequately funded. Next year's minimum financial obligations will bankrupt the township's general fund. Eight years of inaction, poor financial decisions, mismanagement, and lack of foresight led us to consider selling assets, such as the Water Authority. Governing from crisis to crisis, how current majority board manages the township, is impractical and unsustainable. We must develop a long-term, viable, and sensible plan that ensures financial solvency, holds our valued assets, avoids bankruptcy, and maintains control of our assets.
This is a critical time for Warminster and now is the time for new leadership and a new direction. We need practical and sensible leaders who provide transparency and solutions that address the community's concerns/issues to enhance the quality of life our residents expect and deserve. For the past 25 years, we experienced cuts in services, the loss of open space, PFAS contamination in our drinking water supply wells, increased traffic congestion, roads in disrepair, and the potential sale of assets to name a few. The expectation for our elected officials is to make informed decisions that are best for the township and its residents. I have the leadership experience and employ sensible and practical management skills that provide positive outcomes. I decided to run for Supervisor because I believe Warminster is a great place to live and raise a family and managing by crisis needs to change. I am a new leader who will create positive changes for our residents and business community.
I currently serve the township residents as Chair of the Environmental Advisory Council, as an alternate on the Planning Commission, a member of the Budget Committee, and as a member on the Pension Investment Advisory Committee. I understand municipal budgets and the issues facing our township. My previous work experience includes railroad employment, a member of a Philadelphia building trade union, government employment, and work as a senior manager at several environmental consulting/engineering firms. I started and currently am the managing member of two small business ventures, work as a senior technical director at an upstart environmental consulting/engineering company, and serve on the board of directors at the same environmental company. My experiences are the foundation for the new leadership and new direction our township deserves to develop a sensible plan that attracts new businesses and residents to the township and improves our quality of life.

Warminster Township faces a serious financial crisis and possible bankruptcy if we don't carefully review all of our assets and budget needs and come up with a long term solution. We think we have a viable solution to keep us solvent without selling assets while maintaining services and protecting our citizens. Selling assets which I have heard considered,for example, the Municipal Authority, is never a good idea. Because of poor financial management, our township may become bankrupt next year just from paying our Minimum Monthly obligation to the Pension fund. I have heard people say "What about all of the construction? Hasn't that brought in more revenue? The truth is that because of poor planning, the services provided after new housing is built, costs the township more than the taxes realized. A sensible plan that provides long term solvency without selling off our assets and protecting our water quality is what we desperately need. I believe that we can reach that goal.
I first moved to Warminster as a young bride in 1971. My son was born here and it was a lovely place to live with good schools. Personal issues forced me to leave, but my now grown son and I purchased a house together for me and his family in 2013. What a difference! There is no more open space. The school district ratings are the worst of sixteen surrounding School Districts. The roads are in disrepair, the services are few. Then we find out that the water is contaminated and our water bill doubled. I realized then that the only way to turn around Warminster is to be involved. I believe we can make Warminster the fine place to live that we once enjoyed. Our residents expect us to make decisions based on what is best for our citizens, not based on cronyism and lack of vision. I believe that New Leaders will send us on a New Direction to make positive and smart decisions for our businesses and residents.
Currently I serve as a Warminster Township Auditor. Previously I served on the Parks and Rec Board. My experience in negotiations and Redesigning Government initiatives in the City of Philadelphia has covered every facet of Municipal government. As AFSCME DC47's Legislative Coordinator from 2010 through 2013, I monitored pending legislation in the City of Phila and in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as well as budget issues. As Union Agent for AFSCME Local 2187 (Professional and Administrative Employees of the City of Philadelphia) I had entree to every branch of Municipal government. I served as a negotiating team member for every City contract since 1984 through 2009. I have experience as a Health & Welfare Trust Fund Trustee (10 years) and have earned a Master Certificate in Public Funds from the International Employee Benefits Foundation. I also served Phila. as a Real Property Evaluator for ten years. I have the knowledge and experience to redirect Warminster.

The biggest issue is the opioid epidemic. As a Township Supervisor, I worked with our Police Department and the Bucks County DA’s Office to initiate the Precription Drug Take Back Program in Warminster Township. I have organized and lead a community panel discussion, on the dangers of opioids. And I have also led the pursuit of legal action, in an attempt to hold those accountable for flooding our streets with addictive painkillers, and recover financial loss for the Township.
I am running to continue my serve to the Community, a life long resident of Warminster Township, I have served the last six years as a Township Supervisor. In a attempt to bring businesses to Warminster, I created the Economic Development Committee. To combat against the opioid crisis, I worked with our Police Department to initiate the Precription Drug Take Back Program in our township. And six years ago, I started a community out reach program, where I hold monthly constituent meetings at different locations throughout the Township.
A life long resident of the Township. I’ve served as a member of the Warminster Township Board of Supervisors for the past six years.

I believe we have many issues facing Warminster .I would like to start with a traffic safety committee have it to look into how we can have traffic flow better in the township. Have the committee look into how we can reduce the accidents that happen on our main roads. have the committee look into traffic concerns of the township residents.
I raised my family here in Warminster . I believe this is a great town with great schools, and I want to help it continue to be that place where a young couple can have and raise a family.
