Putting My Experience
to Work for Marion
My Commitment to You:
Marion is on the right track, growing and developing as a vibrant community. As a member of the Marion City Council, I'll work diligently to continue that momentum. Being of service to the community is of the utmost importance to me.
I will bring to the Marion City Council substantial experience in complex project management, data and information security, business continuity, quality management, and regulatory compliance. Each of these disciplines is critical to Marion's operations and continued growth.
I will actively apply my experience to help propel Marion's continued growth. On a consistent basis, I will strive to understand our community's needs will at the foundation of my consideration of all Council business.
Having filled numerous management-level positions with Pearson Education, and with Alliant Energy and its predecessor Iowa Electric, and factoring in my tenure as a science educator at Linn-Mar High School, my overall professional experience will help me to promote Marion's continued growth and development. As always, community growth must be in balance with the maintenance and improvement of existing infrastructure and services.
