Why a webpage?
Communication is a significant challenge in our Society elections. This  web site is a way to quickly introduce myself and alert visitors to the key issues facing the our Society.

I hope you'll find the information you need on this site to make an informed decision for the upcoming election. I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or need further information.
