EDUCATION: Bachelor's in business administration/marketing,Augustana College
POLITICAL PARTY:Republican

PRIOR OFFICE: Current trustee
WHY RUNNING: I am a life-long resident of Rock Island. All of my family live here. I have been an active volunteer in my community and church for over 35 years.
COMMENT:I feel the most important responsibility is how wisely our tax dollars are spent. The four trustees of our township review each and every expense submitted, and must vote and approve all expenses before payments are made. A balanced budget that serves the needs of the residents and delivers the mandates of the state of Illinois also is an important responsibility.
