The questions were prepared by the LWV Cincinnati Area and asked of all candidates for this office.
Read the answers from all candidates (who have responded).
1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)
I have been a resident of the township for 31 years and served as trustee for 13 years. I have a proven record of improving our resident's quality of life and the services provided by our Fire/EMS, Police, and Road departments. I operate my business in the township and am committed to the future of Springfield Township.
2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (100 word limit)
First, the Vision Plan will be regularly updated. Additionally, a Neighborhood Action Plan Task Force is being formed to unite Police, Fire, Zoning/Property Maintenance, and other Township departments as a team to address typically non-responsive property owners. Absentee property owners who do not have the same values or respect for nearby owners will become aware of the need to conform or pay fines for non-compliance. Our Development Services department will develop a Strategic Plan for economic development. Lastly, our forward looking 5 year plans will be updated and serve as a map for the Township's future.
3. What steps would you take to ensure that all public facilities are accessible to people with disabilities? (100 words limit)
All township building or infrastructure modifications made since I have been a trustee have met or exceeded the standards established by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. That will continue in the future.
4. What specific steps will you take to expand recycling services in your community? (100 words limit)
As trustee, I have supported and participated in our Residential Recycle/Cleanup Day for the last 3 years. This year we received 139 lawn mowers, 104 propane tanks, more than 1,000 computer components, 246 lead-acid batteries, 500 gallons of used motor oil, and 322 Freon containing devices. Additionally, 46 tons of refuse/trash and 31 tons of metal, tires, brush and trees were gathered. I will continue my support of and attempt to expand recycling programs. I will continue to support the West College Hill Clean-up Day.
5. What steps would you take to provide affordable housing for all residents of your community? (100 words limit)
I have a record of working with several developers to provide housing for all residents. Importantly they include the Bridge Creek condominiums (west Compton Road) and Stonebridge At Winton Woods (Mill Road) which provides affordable senior housing. We work closely with Habitat for Humanity in West College Hill.
