Education Waldorf University, Forrest City, IA — Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration (Cum Laude), 2016. Northampton Community College, Bethlehem, PA- Associate in Applied Science in Criminal Justice, 2013
Qualifications for Office Served eight years as a constable for Coolbaugh Township. I went to homes and properties of all economic backgrounds in Coolbaugh for 8 years. I see how all sides are living. I bring a young fresh perspective with plenty of real world experience serving the people of Coolbaugh Township already. Former member of the township police study group. My bachelor degree is in, Criminal Justice Administration. Which were both courses in law enforcement, as well as business management. Graduation with that degree, was with honors (cum laude). My family has called Coolbaugh Township home for over three decades.
COVID has shown that the people need more options with lower fees, for good high speed internet. Work from home outside of a brick & mortar office was not a "fad", it's the future that rapidly came here today. We need supervisors that will work to bring more options for high speed internet--that will allow them to work from home, and have family attend school from home--among other modern needs. A competitive market place will benefit the consumers. The township supervisors need to build for a 21st Century future for generations to come.

Also, the township should have more transparency of supervisor meetings. And have at least an audio archive, if not video archive for the public to view at any time. Meeting minutes can only provide so much detail. An audio archive would be a clear transcript of all dialog from both elected officials, as well as the public. Coolbaugh needs 21st Century solutions, not 20th!!!

As a Marketing major in college, I was taught that you cannot sell a product you are not comprehensively familiar with. In other words, know your product before trying to market it. That of course is a metaphor I use in describing what an elected official should be well versed in. Have a strategic plan, Have a long range plan. Know your community, know your neighbors, know your commercial entities, know your geographical boundaries and limitations, know the strengths and weaknesses of your operations and administrative employees so you can best serve your residents, know your neighboring municipalities and their objectives. There is a saying which states, 'become a pillar of the community'. That is not enough. I believe one should be 'part of the fiber of the community'. Become part of the fabric of the community and be intimately familiar with the needs and essential services required to perform the duties of the job that are in fact paid for by the municipal tax payers.
