The biggest problem I see facing Englewood is vacant commercial spaces that are starting to dot the landscape of our fair city. We need to work to either redevelop these sights or demolish them to make green spaces or a blank slate for future development. I will work to allocate the necessary funds to make this a reality
The thing that makes me most qualified to serve as city council member is my love of the community. I’ve lived here my entire adult life. I’ve coached sports teams, I’ve volunteered at schools, and I’ve dedicated my professional life to bettering the community. I keep an open mind and I will strive to keep Englewood the best community in Montgomery County
By keeping the community safe, taxes low, and regulations reasonable we can invite investment in Englewood. I also think we should work together as a region to make the entire area more attractive for outside investment. I will keep communication with other cities open so we don’t lose opportunities with petty squabbles between neighbors
I will help keep the city running efficiently. I will keep an open ear, eye and mind to suggestions from the community to address problems as they arise.
I want the voters to know that I will always do my best to keep Englewood a great place to live, work, and play.
Life long Englewood Resident, and I have held various management, and clerical positions in our city and in the Miami Valley most recently at Wright State University.

The biggest problem in Englewood is the many vacant buildings we have and lack of strong economic development in the city. I drive by many empty buildings on my way to work every day. Not only is this unappealing for the city and its residents, but vacancies are also a safety and economic concern for the city. There is also a lack of collaboration with our neighboring cities, our state representative, and county officials. This lack of cooperation does not help residents who might need the services and ideas the officials have put in place.
We need to take a look at our zoning and tax abatement options for businesses and assure they are attractive for businesses. We also need to update any marketing plan in place to ensure developers and residents know the great amenities Englewood has in place. Finally, we need to have an open, honest relationship with our officials at all levels of government. We should also be willing to meet with them to discuss ideas and options for our city
I was born and raised in the city, and I have seen the ups and downs we have experienced. We need someone in office who knows Englewood, and the areas and officials around us well to ensure we are making informed decisions for the city. I know that to fix the problems we have in our city cannot be done alone. It will take the help of our county and state officials. We need to have a working relationship with our officials which I have gained by working on various projects and campaigns through the county.
While we do have a business park that stimulates the local economy and creates a tax base, many of the businesses are vacant. These vacancies are lost opportunities for jobs and economic growth in our city. To attract high paying jobs in our city, we need to take a look at our zoning, tax abatement, and marketing plans in place to ensure we have the amenities that will attract businesses to our city. We also need to look at the vacancies outside of the business parks and strategize with leaders and residents what the best options for development are in our city and create a plan to attract them. We cannot just let these vacancies sit there any longer.
At any level of government, people want to be heard. As a councilperson, my job will be to represent and serve the residents of Englewood. I would assure residents have my contact information, so they can state their concerns they have with the city. In addition to this, I would also make it easy for residents to know how council members are spending using their tax dollars by recording our meetings and posting them on the website and social media platforms.

Taxes are too high and we have too many empty storefronts. Reduce unnecessary spending and try to help create business opportunities.
As a small business owner, I have successfully managed large budgets for over a decade. I understand that there are not quick fixes, but making consistent good choices can make improvements for our community.
Taxes incentives small businesses and job creators.
Try to manage our city budget closer and reduce some regulations in the city.
I have been happily married for 17 years and have 3 young children. I plan on planting roots in Englewood and just want to help where I can be of service.

I think the current city management does a great job, and if I could build on that I would like to see more growth in the business community. We have a lot of opportunity to grow in the areas of retail, dining and entertainment. Our city is fortunate to have access to the interstate at two separate locations. There is a lot of potential in these areas.
As a lifelong resident of the community I know our strengths, and what opportunities on which we can capitalize. I have run my own business for 27 years, and know how to control costs while obtaining my goals
We should continue to encourage our business community by making Engelwood an attractive place to locate a business. We need to help educate and build our workforce so companies can succeed. Their success is our success.
I would love to see Englewood expand the entertainment options for our residents

Adding residential and business development to the community to expand the tax base. Reaching out to developers to build much needed housing and redevelopment of vacant commercial property.
I have been involved in the community for over 30 years. I deal with different personalities and problems daily. This provides an opportunity to find solutions to issues that will appeal to the parties involved. This also flows into local government. You need to be a people person in order to hear people out to assist in forming decisions and solutions.
I believe tapping into the youth in our community who will be voters in the future. This helps me gain insight into what they see the future holds for jobs, housing and amenities. Revitalizing our community by bringing complementary businesses to town remains a goal.
I will continue to seek input from the community on matters that will affect them. While working in the community, I ask questions and seek how things can be improved. Most residents I have spoken to are pleased with Englewood services, but are tired of high taxes. Attracting builders and investors to locate to our community would help to lessen that burden
I believe having diverse personalities on Council is a benefit to the citizens. It allows for different perspectives and alternative ideas.
