Questions & Answers

1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (200 word limit)

I have served as treasurer for a number of non-profit entities over the years. I admittedly am not an accountant or CPA. Perhaps the office would best be served by an honest "regular" citizen who is able to manage finances well enough to be totally out of debt; who has money in savings after raising six children, with a wife who is a full-time homemaker; who has accomplished this on a preacher's modest salary; and who successfully balances all of his bank accounts each month.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (100 word limit)

Implement them by the grace of God.
