Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I run three successful companies and handle two of them singlehandedly. My skills encompass bookkeeping, scheduling, engineering and design, fabrication, purchasing and customer service.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I do not feel that grandstanding has any place in Political discourse, and feel strongly that some current members of Austin’s political community should never have been permitted to run for office due to their theatrics (like Judge Eckhardt wearing a pink hat while sitting on the bench) - actions like hers bring shame upon an honorable profession, regardless of political affiliation. I am a strong supporter of moderate rationalism, and will choose what is logically sound over something fed by emotionalism.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I enjoy all that Austin has to offer its citizens, especially those less fortunate. I believe that the City would be best represented by Council Districts that echo the diversity and socioeconomic boundaries of their respective communities.
Please provide your employment history. Built two companies from the ground up and manage a third. All operate here in Austin.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. Interested to see the PIR documentation of this commission’s candidates and selection process.
