Running for Bellevue Village Trustee allows me to amplify the public's voice.
As a citizen deeply concerned with community affairs, serving on the Village Board empowers me to make policy decisions and act in Bellevue's best interest.
I am committed to championing the modernization of the existing Village Hall at 3100 Eaton Road, housing the administrative offices. Scheduled for construction from May 2024 to June 2025, this project marks a crucial step forward for our community.

The hallmark of a strong community is a local government that is focused on its people; on serving them, on the co-creation of a place.
Local governments benefits when they move from merely serving customers to engaging citizens by bringing local government closer to the people.
Orienting towards people and elevating strong citizens, the people who care, will ensure we create Bellevue by design, our design.
Within Bellevue’s borders, you will find goods, services, and wages, to support a family through all stages of life.
I view Bellevue with green spaces and retail places that create a strong pulse of community life, retail growth, and business advancement.
I embrace holding public office as an act of service to all Bellevue residents. I will serve the community with your shared perspective as a resident, taxpayer, and property owner.
I will focus to advance the collective decision-making body of the village board, who are responsible for adopting community policies, and empowering village staff to execute the vision.
Financial security is a major goal in life. Discussions centered on taxes brings uncertainty on the impacts to home, debt, living, and family expenses.
My conversation is centered on value; value to residential services, value to supporting infrastructure, value towards our Strategic Plan priorities, and value towards building a community for future generations.
Through preserving our green spaces for destination transportation and recreation we will create a strong connected community.
Developing multi-use trails will support the biking, walking, and rolling culture by offering transportation to retail or employment places to support community life, retail growth, and business advancement.
I endorsed an ambitious transformation of the Huron Road corridor, aiming to create a vibrant mixed-use district. This strategic plan focuses on improving connectivity, enhancing economic growth, and fostering a more cohesive community identity. As Bellevue evolves, I am dedicated to making it an even better place to live, work, and enjoy.
Housing opportunities should support a family through all stages of life.
Bellevue is home to first time home buyers, condos seekers, families with financial constraints, those seeking flexible rental or lease agreements, independent seniors looking for community living, forever home buyers, and those later in life who would benefit from age in place options. There is an enormous demand for expanded housing opportunities, and we need to respond to that feedback.
Addressing the diverse housing needs, I recently approved a Planned Development District for a mixed-use residential project, fostering collaboration between Bellevue and Green Bay. This initiative responds to the demand for expanded housing opportunities, catering to various stages of life.
A community that reflects stability and prosperity attracts business development.
We need to attract infrastructure that will increase density while still retaining flexibility. The ‘go out and get’ culture has changed to a ‘come to me’ culture. This shift will have lasting effects on how people choose to shop, work, and socialize. I would like to see a focus on shared spaces, smaller spaces, that allow small businesses to move into retail space, not just chains.
No. The village board roles are non-partisan; without party affiliation. A candidate may choose to seek out a political party for support in gaining the role.
No. A candidate may choose to seek, or accept, financial support in gaining the role.
In the nonpartisan Trustee role, I will represent residents as shareholders in this municipal Bellevue corporation of 'us'. I am an independent thinker, who is analytical and witty. I approach crucial decisions by living in the facts. I would call myself a facilitator and an influencer. I worked in the legal & compliance field of qualified retirement plans. I value safety and security.
