I am not a politician but believe that I have much to offer with my past experiences in municipal engineering, contract administration and business experience. I have been well received in this Village and would like to be a part in seeing it grow as it should. I have also sat on a variety of committees for the downtown improvements and would like to continue this.
I will protect the past, present and future of Burk's Falls. I will explore opportunities that both protect and enhance your vision for our town. It starts with your vote, let's make positive changes together.
I am a proud Burk's Falls resident with the passion to continue to improve our community and build upon the work of our past and future Council. Your continued support would be greatly appreciated.
