We may not have met yet, but I believe we share ideas about how to advance Frankfort. I want to see our city prosper and develop into a more rewarding place to be, so I’ve decided to run for City Commission. I will use my experience, practical approach, and open mind to help Frankfort thrive.
Before continuing, I know many of our families in Frankfort are struggling because of COVID-19. In our campaign, we are doing everything we can to keep you safe as well. Instead of knocking on your door to have conversations, I am making phone calls and texting to discuss Frankfort issues, and posting information on my Facebook page (click here and please "like" my page to get the latest news).
Here are a few more things about me:
#1 I love living in Frankfort
When my husband Richard and I moved downtown, we were attracted by its historic character, beautiful landscape, and walkable community. Easy access to restaurants, shops, parks, bridges, and trails is important to Frankfort’s quality of life. We need smart development so Frankfort grows without losing our character.
#2 I enjoy working to solve problems
For the last four years, I have been an advocate for ratepayers while serving as Chair of the Frankfort Plant Board. We focused on building long-term solutions for the entire community and implemented common sense programs that reduced customer wait times, added drinking fountains, and increased transparency for the citizens. We need leaders who know how to manage public money and put people first.
#3 I do my homework
As a retired engineer, I have time and the training to really learn about an issue. Being broadly and completely informed is the responsibility of our leaders. I ask questions, I listen to experts, and learn all I can before making a decision.
We need informed and dedicated commissioners to move Frankfort forward.
I hope I can count on your vote for the November 3 election!
