Why did you decide to run for office?
As Membership chair, I understand how important membership is, both financially and as it pertains to service. Dues are very important, so is reducing spending. I want to be a part of the decision-making process that will affect Kiwanis positively and prudently. I plan to balance the budget without having to take money from our reserve.

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis?
At the end of my tenure as president of Kiwanis International, I want Kiwanis to have gained in membership and to be financially sound.
