Candidate Statement

Keeping Our Town Safe

As a Social Worker I have seen the effects of elder and child abuse. As a Service Coordinator who worked in the field of disabilities, I have seen the impact that bullying, and suicide has had on families. I have seen families destroyed by drugs and alcohol. Continuing to partner with the Gates Fire Department, Ambulance, Schools, Churches, Business Owners, Non-Profit Agencies, Library, Community Partners and Residents in our town to find solutions and to build a strong and safe community is vital to the optimal health and well being of our residents.

Keeping Our Town Affordable

As your councilwomen this will be done by inviting and including our residents to participate and have a say in the town plan and budget. This ensures fiscal responsibility and that the needs of the residents are adequately met. This ensures that our hopes, dreams and visions for our town now and in the future are met. I seek to form a task force to promote affordable housing and homeownership, seeking out grants for those in need of home repairs, educating on energy efficient homes which promotes a green environment and reduces energy costs. This in turn builds up our tax base and aid in school funding.

Improving the Quality of Life of our Residents

As your Councilwoman I will continue to advocate for free and low-cost recreational activities and services in our town which improve the quality of life of residents and helps them to obtain tools to acquire social mobility.
