Experience I have served as Parish Secretary and Webmaster at St. Vivian Parish for the past several years and have helped modernize the parish, including overhauling our online presence. I am also a Big Sister and a Girl Scout Troop Leader.
Political Philosophy It’s time for a fresh perspective. I will work with our many great neighborhoods to hear resident concerns, to make our township’s government more user friendly, and bring Springfield Township into the modern era.
My documented history of hands-on service and my proficiency in researching the issues will help me build a greater future for Springfield Township. My fresh perspective enables me to develop creative solutions to tough, long-standing problems.
Firstly, I will review policies and practices in our administration that have remained stagnant and unchanged for years. My second priority will be ensuring user-friendly government and modern transparency, by putting organized documents and data online for easy access and use. I will then reallocate cost savings from the above measures to other projects such as, but not limited to, infrastructure improvement, while informing residents of these plans and priorities. logo
