To give my public voice a vote.
My civic life is a citizen concerned with the affairs of the community. Serving as a Bellevue Village Trustee supplies a vote towards achieving goals.
As a Village Trustee I will guide Bellevue through applying knowledge and experience from attending village board meetings since 2012, and budget work sessions since 2017.
My 20-year business ownership experience and acquired leadership & facilitation skills provides a foundation for guiding the municipal organization of Bellevue.
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 government will benefit when we move from merely serving customers to engaging citizens by bringing local government closer to the people.
Orienting towards our people and elevating our 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 will 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, and value towards our Strategic Plan priorities.
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.
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.
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. We should focus on shared spaces, smaller spaces, that allow small businesses to move into retail space, not just chains.
There are 4 candidates for 2 trustee spots. On April 5, 2022 vote for 2 candidates: Kenneth Garwood, Victor Hoffman, Jackie Krull, John Sinkler.
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. I value safety and security.
