Meet the Candidates:

Graduated class of 1986
Am 42 years old – lived in Sycamore for the majority of life
Father of 4
Why should voters elect me?
My primary concern is that the people of Sycamore have a voice. A representative is a single voice for the people that he represents. It is a representative’s responsibility to listen to the needs and concerns of the people represented and in turn, it is up to that representative to gather information and provide feedback. It is a representative’s duty to set his/her personal agenda aside and do the hard work needed to represent his constituents and not just “go along with city hall”. I feel my two primary strongest characteristics are the willingness to represent the people and not city hall and to hold my fellow representatives accountable for their decisions. I am not influenced by any party nor any individual. Those that I would represent come first for the betterment of Sycamore.
