Growing business success and jobs, while maintaining quality of life
My passion and love for this Town has not diminished in the twenty- five years since my husband and I made the decision to make Gilbert our home and to raise our family here.
During this time I have worked along with others to ensure that our community is one of the finest in the United States; one that is safe, clean and vibrant and reflects the small town atmosphere and family values shared by our citizens.
I am not a naysayer; I am a worker, proud and dedicated to our community. I have proven consistently to Gilbert’s voters that I have both a strong work ethic and an ability to implement long range planning. It continues to be my privilege to work with the Mayor, fellow Council members, Gilbert’s business community, our school districts, neighborhoods and employees to achieve a reputation that is valued by our residents.
I am optimistic about Gilbert’s future and the opportunities that lie ahead. Just as in the past, these stressful times present challenges for elected leadership to be creative, innovative and efficient. I have demonstrated these traits throughout my service to our residents yet at the same time; recognize the importance of preserving the investments our citizens believe have worth.
As your Council member I will remain steadfast in working to achieve a Gilbert that will continue to grow and develop a dynamic business climate, continue to prioritize safety, as well as commit to ensuring efficient street systems, the development of fields for youth sports, and continue to partner with our schools; as their success is a mutual priority.
I am proud of what has been accomplished on behalf of our citizens and it is therefore with appreciation and continued support from my family and Gilbert residents that I look forward to serving our citizens and their families for another four years as a Gilbert Town Councilmember.

Jay’s Note: I have invited all of the candidates running for Gilbert Town Council to publish a guest post here. This should not be construed as an endorsement for any particular candidate. Nor is this in any way connected to my position as a Commissioner on the Town of Gilbert’s Redevelopment Commission. I’m simply providing another venue for all of the candidates to get their message out to the residents of our lovely Town of Gilbert. I do encourage you to vote on May 17, 2011.
