Questions and Answers
1. What do you think you have done well that justifies your reelection? What are you specifically going to do to ensure that progress continues.

I feel that I did my best to give my all to my community. During my time on the council I’ve addressed many concerns from constituents and we worked together to achieve a proper resolution. Besides attending community events in our city, some of my highlights were participating in the peaceful protests, community conversations, farmers to families food distribution, as well as bringing the food to communities that didn’t have transportation to receive one, General Wozenski Committee and assisting our City during their state of need when Mother Nature wasn’t on our side (ex. Pandemic, tropical storms, floods).

2. What work have you done to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in Bristol? Is there more that needs to be done?

Together the diversity council worked hard to develop the foundation of the Council, so that we can listen to the community. We recognize that this is just the beginning, and we have a lot of work to do, but our foundation is taking form and we’re ready for your voices be heard.

3. Are taxes in Bristol too high or fair as they are? If you think taxes are too high, what specific cuts would you recommend to bring them down and how would you deal with the impact on services and programs?

While taxes are a concern of every resident, I feel that we’ve done an adequate job to keep them within reason. I would like to explore additional options for seniors whom live on fixed incomes and possibly try to create incentives for our cities first responders whom wish to make Bristol their home. We have to keep in mind that if we cut taxes, what do we take away from the “Quality of Life” we’re used to.
