What are your top 3 priorities if elected?

1) Transparency – making it easier for residents to find and understand information and participate in decision-making processes.

2) Smart growth that prioritizes safety, preserves open space, minimizes congestion, and keeps the quality of life high for Middletown Township residents. This includes a better trail/bike lane/mass transit network and well- maintained parks and open spaces.

3) Environmentally responsible policies, including creating a citizens’ Environmental Advisory Council, increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. Prioritizing the protection of our air, water, and land via the update of the township’s Comprehensive Plan, ordinances, and enforcement mechanisms.

1) Keeping our homeowner township taxes low and making public improvements within our budget by maintaining a sound tax base through support of enterprise in our business districts. 2) Encouraging the preservation of public and open space, as well as connecting pathways, through agreements with developers or private citizens, or township purchase. 3) Continuing development of the Roosevelt Community Center in the Southern end of the township, creating a place for youth and community organizations, as well as individuals, to gather. I encourage neighbors and friends to come together and celebrate what unites us.
