I learned right away the office union workers are all well-versed Deputy Recorder's. I had the obligation to attend the Ohio Recorder's Association (ORA) Conference at the beginning of the year (in my first term) for New Recorder's Orientation and Training. I continued to attend each ORA conference held which are scheduled 3-4 times a year. Each conference allows me to stay up to date with Ohio Legislation Laws
My continuity for office policies and procedures, not only for the staff but my constituents. Continued Outreach Programs throughout the Lucas County communities. Remaining up to date on Recorder software and equipment.

For 25 years I operated my own business offering high level computer based litigation support for Fortune 500 companies and others, and earlier worked with computers as a systems analyst for large insurance companies. I earned my bachelors degree in Systems Analysis for computers and then earned a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Toledo. I served 12 years on the Sylvania School Board and since have been actively involved in the Ohio Council of Community Schools where I have served as Chairman of the OCCS board for the past six years, promoting Charter School opportunities that provide quality alternative learning environments for kids from lower socioeconomic- backgrounds.
For most of us, our homes are our most important investment and we need good records to protect that investment. As Recorder, I have the skills and the capability to make sure that the Lucas County Recorder office’s computer systems are up to date. I will make sure that those systems report accurate information, are user friendly, and cost effective. I will do this by retaining knowledgeable personnel, closely monitoring the office’s budget, and implementing best practices from the state Recorder’s Association.
