This morning, I attended a meeting of the Mequon Economic Development Board. I have been a member since 2014 (and also served on the board as an alderman). This is just one of many ways I have stayed active with the City, and in the community, since I decided not to run for reelection three years ago. I also have served on committees at Lumen Christi Church, assisted Mequon businesses and served as a board member of the Mequon Community Foundation (an independent, nonprofit charitable organization).
I have lived in Mequon and been active in this community since junior year of high school, and have been active with Mequon city government in one capacity or another for almost 18 years.
An alderman should know the community and the government body in which she or he will serve. I have been immersed in Mequon for a long time.
