How did you become libertarian?
I have been a Libertarina for 20 years. I first became interested when I was forced to homeschool my children downstate. Several second graders at the school were sexually abused, and the school acted horribly and took no accountability. As a journalist, I broke the story and had to pull my kids. I discovered a huge underground movement.
So, why did you decide to run for office?
As a communications professional, I hope to better communicate with Mancelona residents about what’s happening in their town. I also want to be sure our local township continues to have few ordinances and no zoning.
What do you see as the main issues?
Right now we have no burning issues in our township because they do practice limited government. I want to keep it that way.
I also want to see that they become more transparent. For example, right now there is no contact info on the website, and the meetings are not filmed.
I also am very involved in a local effort @Citizens who want a vote on the Antrim County Jail, and I think the townships should be actively involved in those issues which are hot at the county level.
How can we help?
My efforts are all local. Erica Dahl is my campaign assistant and she has been a huge help, assisting with passing out door hangers and signs.
As a real estate broker, I have a very strong social media presence and am using those skills to promote my campaign.
So anything you can do to spread the word to my voters is helpful.
