Education Trade school graduate
Community/Public Service Great Plains SPCA foster and volunteer Unleashed Pet Rescue Foster Several Fundraisers for Families affected by Fire and Personal Disasters, raised a combined $10,000 Provide Safety Skills for Young children and their families with my StambaughKids group Adopt a family with Hand in Hand 2 years in Row and adopt a retirement home which we provided gifts for the elderly
Restructure Tax Abatements and previous contracts that affect our rural land and neighboring cities to make them fair and equitable for the town. Lower the mayor's salary from 90,000 a year (in a small town of 1700) to $1,000. Bring in Rural Water #7 to take over our water and sewer. Our current infrastructure cannot handle more residential development, so in order to bring more residential development into our town, we need to start from the ground up to create incentives for new building. We haven't had a new home built in 10 years
I'm a natural leader but also a listener. Edgerton residents have expressed the fact that they do not feel like their voices are being heard. We need someone who is approachable and will represent the residents of the town. I have been an educator in my industry for 10 years. I know how to take on a responsibility and fulfill duties expected while being empathic to what people need. I believe politics doesn't need to be heartless and it seems to me, our current council is on auto pilot and has b come desensitized to human decency. We need that back.
Becoming the only woman on the council. We currently lack diversity in the entire town. The last census reported 97% of residents in Edgerton were Caucasian.
We have to start with having new residential development, which starts first with having a new water system built. Our current infrastructure cannot handle any more buildings so we have to turn it over to Johnson County rural water number 7.
I feel like a good relationship with neighbors and surrounding cities is just as important. I honestly feel there has been a lack of respect for that where Edgerton is concerned. We've made deals that have affected out surrounding towns in a negative way. I want to repair those relationships and become allies with those towns and cities. It starts by communicating and making plans that are beneficial to our County as well.
I do, to an extent. 75% abatements make more sense to me than 100% for 10 years when our town has yet to see any benefits from them as of yet.
