It will be my goal to faithfully represent the interests of the citizens of Kenai. When considering issues affecting you and our city, I will always consider the budget and what is best for Kenai. I have made Kenai my home for the past 26 years. My husband, Jay, and I have 3 grown children. My educational background includes a degree from Memphis State University in Engineering Technology. I currently serve my community as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones.

When elected I will make the following objectives a priority:

— Be an advocate for community involvement and open door policy.

— Encourage local business growth and development.

— Implement and complete bluff stabilization project.

— Carefully plan to provide senior citizen service programs.

— Host the annual personal use fishery.

— Maintain or lower the mill rate.

I would truly appreciate your vote on Tuesday Oct 4th!
