Years as a resident:  We built our home in Sugar Grove in 1994.

Activities: Since 1994 I have coached youth baseball, basketball and soccer along with being active in the Kaneland Schools supporting sports, the fine arts, and Music Boosters.  I served on the Village Public Safety Committee for 7 years, Chaired the Village Police Commission for 5 years, and have been a Village Trustee since 2009.

Work Experience:  I have been involved in Law Enforcement since 1978 and have been teaching Criminal Justice classes for Waubonsee Community College since 2009.

Why I ran for the office of Village Trustee:  I believe that everyone should do all they can to make the community they live in a better place.  Volunteering time and experience is a great way to do this.  I felt that my emergency services and preparedness background brought something to benefit the board.
