1.  Why are you seeking this position?

Basically, I’m running to keep good going! Since 2008, with our excellent staff and Board support, we have experienced a 53 % increase in circulation of materials , and a 66% increase in programs. These programs have run the gamut from dinosaurs to classic concerts, and have attracted over 60,000 people.

I have a life long interest in working with community organizations. I have served on the boards of The United WAy, The Renz Center, and PADS.

Elgin is a diverse and dynamic community. If re-elected, I will be looking to be aware of the needs of all ages and populations that the Library can fulfill within sensible budgetary constraints.
