As a long-time resident of Area D and business owner, I hope to capture your vote in the upcoming election.

My reason for running for Area D director stems from my desire to see our community thrive beyond its current existence.

I feel that we are only touching the tip of the iceberg when speaking of the potential of Area D.

Community bonding rather than competing against one another will be an ultimate factor in creating a community to be reckoned with.

Owning Flexus Body Systems has provided me a chance to help countless people over the last 22 years. With this confidence, I will contribute my energy to help solve the current issues at hand.

My thoughts of the future are captivated by developing many holistic interests.

One interest is developing a self-sustaining agricultural plan that can completely feed the residents of both Area D and Grand Forks.

Internal community networking is another precursor to involving a maximum number of Area D residents; the well-being of many should outweigh the needs of few. Water is becoming an invaluable commodity around the world and we need to take more responsibility in its sustainability.

Lastly, recreation in our valley needs to be marketed and developed, since it is a source of joy for many living in this beautiful valley.

A common philosophy that I use is, “The only constant in life is change.”

A system that worked five minutes ago or last year may not be working efficiently now.

One mistake now can cost us decades in recovery. Using my organizational talents will be an asset to Area D, as I would prefer to run the area like an efficient business.
