Why are you running for this office and what qualities and skills do you bring to this position?

I am running for office because I want to make a difference in our planet. Since I was young, I was always taught that if one wants to see a change in the world you live in, you need to take a stand and do something about it. Instead of just sitting around and griping about how our world is going into disrepair, I decided to stand up for what I believe in and run. I am graduated from the University of Central Florida with a double Bachelor’s degree in communication so I am versed in getting messages across to people which is one of the jobs of this position. I am a known problem solver and trouble shooter.

My training with the Navy has taught me how to solve complex issues. My passion for helping others will be crucial for this job.

Why is it important to have Soil & Water Districts?

The soil and water districts are important because there needs to be someone to keep tabs on the water usage in our communities. Many people do not consider the fact that potable water is a finite resource and I want the community that I grew up in to continue having access to clean and safe water. The board promotes preservation and works with the U.S. Department of Agriculture which provides experience both technical and scientific to the agricultural community which is a large part of our society today. This board is important to make sure that our community continues to have clean, safe water.
