The Flossmoor Service League, where I and women from our community raise over $30,000 annually to aid 15 local charities.

Issues and Goals:
I want your vote on April 4th, so I can get to work to bring your fresh and new ideas to reality. One of my goals is to bring premier five star restaurants and retail spaces to our community to recycle consumer dollars. I would also like to combat the ongoing flood issues and old infrastructure that needs immediate attention for our residents. These are agenda’s that I will advocate for on, “Day 1.”
