  1. What are your qualifications to be on Town Council?


I have served on the Economic Development Authority in the Town of Windsor and am an active member of the Windsor Ruritan and Lions Club. I have a strong family connection with the history of Windsor and hope to continue and expand on making Windsor a great place to live and work for generations to come. I am highly dedicated to making decisions in the Town of Windsor’s best interest.


  1. What are some issues you would like to see Town Council address?


Windsor, being the heart of Isle of Wight County, should have a very strong standing when working with the County on current and future projects and businesses. The Town has done well with being fiscally responsible, which is very important to continue as Windsor grows. The Town Council should work closely with the County of Isle of Wight on sewer extensions throughout the town, as well as drainage improvement.


  1. What do you like/dislike about life in Windsor?


Windsor’s small town qualities are part of what makes it a great place for family life. Windsor can keep the small-town feel while also staying business friendly.


  1. Is Windsor “business friendly” in your opinion?


In my experience, the town has been very friendly and receptive to business. There are always ways for improvement and the Town of Windsor should be looking to help small businesses flourish. The Town Council should work closely with Isle of Wight County and business leaders to bring business and investments that would serve citizens and the Town of Windsor in a responsible way.


  1. What are your thoughts on backyard chickens?


In the past The Windsor Town Council has held a public hearing on the matter of backyard chickens. If the subject is brought up again, I would make an informed decision after listening to the citizens and researching the facts.
