I come from a background of family-owned businesses, so I certainly identify with small business owners and the impact the pandemic has had. We need to work with State and Local officials to bring federal pandemic relief funds to Whitehall small businesses and residents, and continue to promote covid19 safety guidelines in order to balance economic health and public health. I believe working cooperatively we will be able to bring Whitehall through this crisis safely and economically sound.

Whitehall Township has used its efforts to balance the needs of the citizens with the needs of our large retail base. The focus is to keep the citizens as best protected as can be by enforcement of the CDC guidelines in the community. The impact of our revenue base is of great concern to keep our taxes and level of service as they have been accustomed. As a current Whitehall commissioner I have committed to a budget adopted with the anticipation of revenues being lower due to the pandemic and making sure our level of expenditures balance to meet the needs of our community. My years of public service, experience and education has given me insight into understanding what the community desires and the best way to accomplish their needs.

People need the truth right now. The main stream media is peddling lies and propaganda to keep people in fear. My blog has my take on things and has links to many places to get the truth about covid and the vaccine. Our country is in danger of losing freedom, as well as the rest of the world, by the traitors and criminals currently in the Whitehouse. It’s unbelievable that so many don’t see the bizarre fact that there’s nothing wrong with anyone anymore, except covid. Or that this vaccine is being FORCED on us, is patented by a man who writes computer code, who is proud of the fact that he advocates depopulation. Truth is what people need to make wise choices, handle their own lives and fight for a “free America”, while we still have it.
