Why did you decide to run for office? 

I want to significantly contribute to the long-term global survival of Kiwanis, and this can only be done at the Kiwanis International level.  

What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International? 

Director and officer of four 501(c)(3) corporations. Created teen suicide awareness and prevention program. Organized joint fundraising efforts of Kiwanis and other groups for needy children. Numerous Kiwanis leadership awards. Two proclamations from Mayor of Portales, NM, for community service. State of New Mexico 2012 Civic Volunteer of the Year. 

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis? 

As a Kiwanis International trustee, I will work cooperatively with the officers and trustees of the Kiwanis International Board, and dedicate myself to excellence. Also, I will advocate a long-term Kiwanis survival program operated as a global service project using the success of The Eliminate Project as a model and The Formula as a guide.
