I was running for the Montgomery County Recorder because:
1) I have real estate business experience, as an investor and a Realtor, have been a notary public and affiliated with a local realty -
all of which are directly relevant to the County Recorder position;
2) I'm a local business owner who knows how wasteful and inefficient county government is -
and how to improve it and help residents and local businesses instead of stifling their growth and success;
3) and because I actually fought to significantly improve a long-neglected largest local school district -
where I lead the way to make unprecedented improvements in financial accountability and transparency,
fixed the decades-long transportation problem, brought technology to the 21st century
with the best 1:1 technology program anywhere in the region, and have helped avoid a looming state takeover by getting
first-ever historic "A" on the state report card.
Once elected, I wanted to lead the way to improve the Recorder's office as
well as promote the same fiscal accountability and transparency on a county-level as I successfully did before on a
school district-level. Montgomery County has slow recording of real estate titles, had a $9 million dollar
budget shortfall in 2018 that necessitated raising of sales tax, and is the second highest taxed county in Ohio - so clearly, new leadership by an experienced, innovative,
fiscally-responsible professional is desperately needed.
I was honored to have 88,444 votes and tremendous support in the November 2018 election!
