As a member of CSMFO I have had the benefit of the trainings, conferences and seminars offered which have helped me advance in my career. It would be an honor to give back to the organization and a privilege to serve the members of CSMFO on the Board of Directors.

I believe CSMFO is the greatest resource the municipal finance profession has and would work hard to ensure we continue to provide relevant and timely information and training opportunities to its members. I would look forward to sharing my experiences of managing through good and bad financial times as well as winding down the tricky path of redevelopment dissolution.

I would work closely with the president and other board members to continue the tradition of excellence that has been set by the board members that have served our organization.

Please consider allowing me to serve by electing me as a member of the Board of Directors.
