CITIZENS OF NEWPORT NEWS
Now is the time for change for a better community. Fair and equitable assessment is a must. I have the vision and ambition to reach our goals because you, the citizens of Newport News, are entitled to greater prosperity and the benefit of our growth.
For nearly 20 years, as a proud resident of Newport News, I have been serving the public, private and non-profit sectors. Allow me to utilize my diverse professional background, including serving at the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office, and extensive education and training to manage the annual assessment of 23 different taxes that result in over $145 million in revenue funding services to our community.
I plan to be more effective and efficient with the use of our taxpayer dollars by educating residents and businesses on changing tax codes and business processes, improving turnaround time on filings and refunds, and making the resources that residents and businesses need to thrive easily accessible.
In order to ensure open and honest transparent business practices I will recruit and retain qualified, knowledgeable staff, enhance the use of technology, encourage better office communication and improve service to residents.
I will be your advocate for a meaningful tax rate by eliminating waste, cultivating a culture of better stewardship and collaborating with the citizens and the City for optimal administration.
With your help, together we can bring real change for a better community, and I thank you for your continued support.
