Why are you running for this office?
Still trying to strike the balance between excellence in education and fiscal conservativism.
What is the most pressing local issue facing your community and how would you solve it (within the capacity of the office for which you are running)?
Increase commercial property ownership.
With the state's ongoing budget crisis looming over the election, what are your plans for your community's budget? Is there anything you can do make your town less dependent on revenue from the state?
Every town is out to make itself as attractive as possible. As a school board member, I will do my best to make the school system as attractive as possible.
The legislature has been debating various ideas to allow towns to raise revenue locally through something other than property taxes. If you could ease your residents' property tax burden by adding another method of taxation, is there anything you might consider for your town?
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
As a community with a regional high school, all the towns that feed into Norwich Free Academy would be a great place to start.
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
No. It should be based on student population.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
People seem to think that I am approachable. So, there is nothing about me that people don't already know. They just ask.
