  Friends have been asking me why I want to run for commissioner. Throughout my life, I have always valued my relationships with 

  people and have strived to make this a better world.  Lately I have become disillusioned with many things but in particular, the   

  direction our country is taking.  How can I, one person, make a difference?  I do volunteer my services with the elderly and the

  LGBTQ community, but I feel that I can do more.  I need to participate in making this a better world, and what better place to start

  than in my own community.

   One issue that I feel is most important is maintaining the open green space that remains in our community.  I feel it is important to

   work with county and state agencies in order to stop the overdevelopment of our town.  I intend to be active and aggressive in

   meeting the needs of the residents of the fifth ward of Marple.  I am also interested in finding ways to better manage the traffic

   congestion that we all face. Since I am retired I have the time as well as the energy to be a voice for each resident.

  With your support, these are some of the issues that I plan on addressing as I try to impact our community.
