I love our community. This community is a loving and caring community that would come and support others in need. I have seen this many times through our foundation, the Mar and Linda Memorial Foundation as well as other events.
What are the top three issues you would face during your term?
The completion of the 169/282 overpass that is a needed item. Industry for more jobs for our community. And a better working relationship with our community schools valley green and surrounding townships.
Have you been charged in the past year, or ever been convicted, of a misdemeanor or higher, or been involved in a personal or business bankruptcy or foreclosure?

Try and work with them on how we can help them to decide to make Jordan their future.
If the Minnesota Renaissance Festival changes their location to the potential site near the Scott County Fairgrounds, do you think it would be a positive or negative for the community?
I think it can be positive with more people getting to see what Jordan truly has to offer

With the uncertainty of the future at this time, I feel we might have to look at it as a do we need it or is it a want issue. Trying to watch our tax base without increasing taxes.
