WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE TOP THREE ISSUES IN THIS RACE?

  2. Reducing the cost of government and keeping valued services intact.
  3. Protecting what makes St.Augustine/St. Johns County special.


HOW CAN YOU HELP VOTERS IN A WAY THAT THE OTHERS RUNNING FOR THIS OFFICE CANNOT?

  • "I am an experienced CPA, County Commissioner and member of Florida Tax Watch. I have been actively engaged in reforming government spending and regulations-while protecting what makes St. Johns County special-not like every other exit off I-95."

  • "Treating residents and businesses with dignity and respect. She made fact based decision based on the long term best interest of St. Johns County-not sound bite politics."
