Why are you running for town clerk?
I view this as an opportunity to take my service to the town to the next level.  I have thoroughly enjoyed serving the town in the capacity of Councilwoman since 2003 and can bring that municipal experience, along with my professional background, to the Clerk position. My degree is in computer programming within a business environment, and I was employed in that field for a number of years prior to staying home with my children.  I currently work in the tax department at a large commercial development company. I have been actively serving the town in a variety of venues since the mid 1990’s and hope that I have demonstrated my strong work ethic and love for our community. For me, it is about service to people, and it is my desire to take that service to the next level.
