What is the primary reason you are running for this office?
My primary reason for seeking this office is that I pay a substantial amount of money out of my property taxes each year to the O.P.F.D., and I want to have a voice in how this money is allocated.
What will be your single most important priority if you get elected?
My most important priority will be reducing taxes on the hardworking home and business owners within the O.P.F.D.
What sets you apart from the other candidates?
I believe that any public service department should be operated as a business in order to maximize the services that are provided with tax revenue. My many years of business acumen will enable me to implement good business practices within the O.P.F.D.
How long have you lived in Orland Park?
I have lived in Orland Park since July of 2005.
What's your favorite thing about Orland Park?
My favorite thing about Orland Park is the outstanding setting that it provides me to raise my children.
What is the biggest problem in Orland Park?
The biggest problem facing Orland Park now and in the coming years will be trying to convince business owners to either stay, or relocate to our Village. We are already at a disadvantage in light of the recent tax hikes past earlier this year, and towns within the State of Illinois are going to have to get creative with maintaining and growing their business communities.
