What are two issues you feel are important and how do you plan to address them?

The Town Clerk position has a well defined job description. Unlike other politically elected positions, the Town Clerk is to remain impartial and focused on performing the duties as assigned.  I feel my personal impact on the position would be demonstrated in how I execute the individual responsibilities of the job.  My ultimate goal as the Town Clerk is to provide friendly, efficient service to the people of Dublin.  It is my job to make everyone feel welcome when they walk through the door and complete the necessary paperwork in a prompt fashion.  Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.  My passion is truly with helping others and I would love nothing better than to be your new Town Clerk/Tax Collector.

What are two issues you feel are important and how do you plan to address them?

I moved to Dublin with my family after falling in love with the area and this town in particular in 1998 when my sons were ages 4 and 7. I grew up in New England and always have considered it my home. My sons both went to DCS throughout elementary school and now are grown and both still living in the area. Nicholas is currently attending his second year at Keene State College. Stefan is living with me here in Dublin, working full time as a residential mental health counselor and hoping to go to graduate school in the fall. I have enjoyed serving and getting to know my fellow residents. I would be honored to serve another term, and this would be the right choice for the town of Dublin.

Prior to being elected as Dublin’s town clerk/tax collector in 2008 I served as the deputy for two years under Barbara Sovik. This was extremely valuable because before one can begin to perform the duties required, he or she must attend training in Concord with the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Revenue and the Vital Records Division. Once this formal training is completed, to be proficient many months of practice is necessary in registering and titling vehicles, using the town’s software, elections duties, and many other important tasks.

I have completed hundreds of hours of training and have eight years of experience performing the duties required of this position I attend additional training each year to keep my knowledge up-to-date as laws often change. Familiarity with state laws is essential and a town can be penalized for failure to follow them.

I have always considered accuracy, fairness and protecting my customers’ privacy to be extremely important, and occasionally I go beyond the call of duty to accommodate someone with an unusual situation.
