Almost by accident, my life experiences have prepared me to be the mayor of Windsor. As an attorney, I negotiated complex, high dollar transactions similar to Windsor’s upcoming $100 million investment in the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project. As General Counsel and Executive Vice President at each of Frontier Airlines and Midwest Airlines, I honed my leadership skills and expanded my strategic planning experience, both essential traits for a mayor. As a group General Counsel at Johnson Controls, I negotiated deals with states, counties, and school districts across the globe, gaining in-depth knowledge of public procurement rules and municipal finance structures. Upon retirement, I studied political science and local government at CSU, learning the differing approaches to governance and policy. I volunteered as a legislative aid for our State Representative, gaining experience in the State’s legislative and budgeting processes. I was elected to represent District 6 on the Windsor Town Board in 2018, and have spent two years helping address the issues facing Windsor. My undergraduate degree was in history, and I remain intrigued with our past. I volunteer at the Windsor Art and Heritage Center, helping inventory their collection of historical documents and objects. I have learned many interesting things about Windsor’s unique and wonderful history. But mostly, I learned I love this Town! I can and will devote full-time effort to tackle difficult issues arising from our unprecedented growth, and to represent Windsor as an experienced professional in all local, regional, state, and even national matters.
