I want to make Meriden more business friendly and encourage economic growth.
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)?
Low Income housing downtown must be curtailed to allow for more market rate housing
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?
We need to streamline how City Hall works to provide better services to constituents with greater efficiency at a lower cost.
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?
I am not in favor of any additional taxation.
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
I would be in favor if it brought savings to Meriden and the tax base.
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
Meriden has maintained a no increase Education budget for over 5 years. We continue to more with less every year.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm an avid chess player, having toured the state in my youth winning multiple championships
