So far, what’s your proudest accomplishment in 2019?

That we’re way ahead of the power curve for the 2020 election cycle by developing forms/policy/procedure NOW.

Valentines Day is in February. What do you “love” about your job?

The importance of public trust when it comes to conducting fair and impartial elections – especially now in such a crazy political climate. And I love servant leadership so February is my month apparently.

I can’t complete in one sentence – so I’ll say before I die I want to…..LIVE!

10 Year Challenge! What were you doing in 2009? How did it help you reach your current position?

Just moved to rural Cochise County from a high profile city job.  First job here was working in community development in a small, 100 year old city.  That was a great learning experience to learn about the people here, local gov’t, and adjusting to gov’t life outside of corporate America.

(Complete the sentence) The first time I heard about ELGL was…

on Facebook – I think – although I see the group everywhere!

What question should we have asked? What’s the answer?

What do I want to be doing in 10 years?  Retired, but very active in local gov’t either as elected official or sitting on boards and commissions continuing to make a difference.
