In my 22 years in education, I've had to make many individu- al and group decisions that were both easy and difficult. I've been responsible for multiple programs and budgets within the school setting on a yearly ba- sis. I feel that the relationships I have with people in the com- munity and my experience with budgets and programs gives me an advantage over other candi- dates.

No but did serve 4 years pre- viously as trustee. I believe I was an asset. Identify three issues you ex- pect to face if elected and how you will resolve each? Any issue that is presented will be considered with level headed thinking and much thought on how it will effect the community of Mount Zion. The ground level tank for wa- ter and the new tower consid- ered forthe east side are a must with the growth of Mount Zion. The road around the south of Mount Zion should be the fur- thest south route and I would do everything I can to encourage Macon County to use that one. If elected, what one prob- lem would you fix first? Why is this important? I would like, to see an ordi- nance on storage .pods to a 30 day limit in the yard and then removed. What would you .bring to this elected position :that would give you an advantage over your opponents?? In the past there has been calm and collective reasoning on issues, I would like to see the board return to that.
