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

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.
