My main motivation is to continue the growth of the office into a more technology-friendly environment. We’ve started implementing policies and projects that will allow our taxpayers to access detailed data on their own properties, at their convenience. These projects will also enable us to provide better service to the public through software capabilities. During my tenure, and especially with the pandemic’s affects, we identified areas where improvement could be made to make our efforts more efficient. As our processes become streamlined and web-based, it inherently helps the County manage future costs to maintain and store physical files which become less necessary. We are implementing on-line access for the public and will congtinue to do so. I want to make sure I’m here to continue the progress where we all reap the benefits, now and in the future.

We are the community. Our office is a blend of ages, races, expertise and backgrounds that live in various Districts within the County. When a constituent contacts us to discuss a matter, we’re not only knowledgeable, but most likely affected in the same way. We live by the same procedures and protocols that we extend to the public, so we try to be as accommodating as possible. That lends us to a better understanding of the needs of our taxpayers, which inevitably helps us to empathize with their situation. Customer service is a priority and we’re lucky to have a diverse community in Berks County, which is mirrored in our staff. If we’re inhibited by something that we can control and change, we do so to ensure our procedures are practical. Our office will continue to be a mirror of our community.
