  1. Why are you running for a city commission seat?
    I believe to keep our city growing we need a strong city and communication lines open between the citizens and city government ...

    The most important issues concerning our city today are small business, new entrepreneurs and affordable housing.

    I have owned and operated a few businesses in our community which have fared well.  I started Main Street Subs to bring quality products and service to our sweetest town.  I currently own and operate Barbara’s Hair Salon on Bond Street. 
  1. Include any background here – education, family, city of residence, public service – that you feel is relevant to your candidacy.
    I have served on the community redevelopment board and now serve on the Chamber of Commerce,  Hendry County  Cattle Women Association and the Clewiston Sugar Festival.
