I have been on the Dafter Township for A LOT of years. As Trustee, I have other assignments also on the board. I am a part of the Recreation Board as well as the Zoning Board of Appeals. Both these assignments I take as very important for our community.

My feeling for the board is as follows; I believe we work well together as a group for the betterment of our township. We don't always agree on all information we discuss....however what is best for the residents of the township comes first.

In working for you the residents I just want what is best for the community and have a great place to live.

Thank You for allowing me to be a part of the community as your Trustee on this township board.

I enjoy serving the community. I have volunteered on the Fire Department since 2002. In April 2016, I was appointed to fulfill the remainder of Joyce Engelhardt's term as Trustee. I ran for the position and was elected in the 2016 election.  I want to thank all the residents who voted for me. I am looking forward to service the township and working with the Board.
