Lower Taxes
Dublin is a successful community, generating budget surpluses. We can afford to reduce our taxes, without hurting city services. I will work to immediately reduce your taxes.

Safety, Drugs & Traffic Issues
I have plans to:
  • Address problems Ward 4 is experiencing with unsafe cross walks, speeding and traffic patterns.
 
  • Create a Drug Free Dublin program to prevent the serious drug problems in neighboring school districts from gaining strength in Dublin.
  •  
  • I will create an advisory board made up of residents that will meet with me monthly and discuss the issues for their areas.

Responsive
I will personally knock on Ward 4 residents’ doors to listen to what you have to say.



What makes me the best candidate for this job?

 

I will be an advocate for the people of Dublin and Ward 4. I have fresh ideas and I want to reinvigorate the neighborhoods. I will get people involved, and give them a voice in the way their tax dollars are spent and this city is governed.

 

People deserve to be informed about what is happening in their city and to be included in the decisions, but they are not getting that.

 

Further, I will create an advisory board made up of residents that will meet with me monthly and discuss the issues for their areas.

 

I live in Dublin. I work in Dublin. I volunteer in Dublin. I'm always here and I will make a difference.

 

I have several plans for Dublin:

 

Lower Taxes

Dublin is a successful community, generating budget surpluses. We can afford to reduce our taxes, without hurting city services. Too many middle class families are telling me they cannot afford any more in taxes. Too many people over 65 are being forced to move because they cannot afford Dublin taxes.

 

I want to support families and help people stay in their Dublin homes into their golden years. I will work to immediately reduce property taxes.

 

City Services

We have a great city, we should always try to improve things, but we have to take better care of what we already have. I will address the current problems in Ward 4.

 

I have spoken to numerous people across the ward who are having problems with speeding, parks and ponds not being maintained properly, and dangerous crosswalks. I have been told that their complaints have fallen on deaf ears with the current councilman. I know how important it is to take care of what we currently have.

 

I live in Dublin, work in Dublin, and volunteer in Dublin. I am here to take care of our wards needs.

 

Safety and Health

One of my large goals involves the health and safety of Dublin kids and residents. There are significant heroin and other drug problems in our neighboring cities of Worthington and Marysville.

 

We are experiencing these problems on a small scale in Dublin and we need to become proactive to keep these problems from escalating.

 

I will create a Drug Free Dublin program that will bring our community together on this issue and create a proactive approach to keeping our residents safe and healthy.
