Do you have any other previous experience, special qualifications, or technical training that would be relevant to the position of city council member?
As a member of the Winnebago County Board I have experience in government, budgeting, infrastructure, etc.  I serve of several boards and committees that deal with similar issues to the Oshkosh Common Council.  These include ADVOCAP (Treasurer), Winnebago County Information Systems Committee (Chair), East Central WI Railroad Consortium (Secretary). 

Please write a concise statement that describes why you wish to serve on the city council
We are in very difficult times for local government.  I believe that we need to seek new, creative ways to deliver services while preserving the quality of these services.  I want to see Oshkosh move forward in these difficult times, not fall behind or stand stagnant.  I will add a creativity and openness to new ideas while still defending the integrity of our local government.  I believe in the mission and responsibilities of local government, and the City of Oshkosh.  I will work to advance both.

I ask the Oshkosh Common Council to consider my application for this open seat.
