I would always support programs that would save us money.

If you are a newcomer, what prompted you to run for the park board? If you're an incumbent, list your accomplishments or key initiatives in which you played a leadership role.

My family has been actively participating in the South Barrington Park District for over 10 years. From pre school to day camp to tennis lessons. This is my way of paying it forward to continue on all these great programs and hopefully start new ones.
