City Council Campaign Questions

I believe my experience in the private sector will lend itself to me becoming a significant contributor to our City Council. I view membership in city council as a continuation of my long history of community service. I was a member of the Recreation Board for over 10 years as well as being a member of the Steering Committee. I understand how our city government works. I have 30 years of experience in the private sector building and running a multi-million dollar construction company that builds bridges, sidewalks, buildings and roads. In the private sector, I have made the same capital allocation decisions, legal decisions, and budgetary decisions council is called to make on behalf of the residents.

I hope to accomplish the total development of Valor Acres and Central School. Having lived in Brecksville for over 25 years, I understand how the development of these two projects is important to the future of our city. Along with Sherwin Williams, we need to add important components to attract additional tenants. The Central school property should be developed in a manner that blends itself with our existing downtown area, Single family homes, and green area. If these projects are developed properly we should be able to ensure continued economic growth.

After talking to many Brecksville residents, the number one existing issue is flooding. The good news is that per the State of Ohio and Cuyahoga County no new construction projects can be completed without detention and retention programs. Therefore, the development of Valor Acres and Central School should have no impact on the existing water issues in Brecksville. The existing infrastructure of all cities the USA are antiquated and need to be improved. I will work with City Council and the City Engineer to put a plan together to continue this improvement.

By controlling the development of the Central School Property, and making sure that is developed in a fundamentally sound manner.

City Council and Mayor Hruby have always worked out a way to continue development in Brecksville while keeping an eye on the bigger picture.

No.  That is the reason that a new RTA hub will be part of the Valor Acres project. 

These proprieties are owned by the school system.  The residents of Brecksville would have to vote on any rezoning of the properties.  My personal opinion would be to keep Hilton School property in case of population growth.  Single family homes for the Chippewa School property, and a green area/ park for Highland School property.  I will back the residents of Brecksville with whatever decision they make.

It is up to the residents of Brecksville.  The residents of Brecksville would have to vote on any rezoning of this property.  My opinion would be single family homes with a green area attached.

The city will have to continue to study to find out where sidewalks are needed to enhance the connectivity of the city, and where they can be added without ruining the flow of the city.  These projects should be funded by the city.  Additional sidewalks can be added in additional areas if the neighborhoods request them, and if they want to pay for them.

Yes, and only yes, if the fiscal forecast for the city demonstrates this to be feasible.

I feel if people are doing a good job and want to serve they should be allowed.  I have not found a lot of people who want to serve.  I believe people either talk about serving others or they actually serve others.
This is a privately owned property that will have to be rezoned if developed for a different use.  Again it will be up to the residents of Brecksville to make a decision.

The good news is that per the State of Ohio and Cuyahoga County no new construction projects can be completed without detention and retention programs. Therefore, the development of Valor Acres and Central School should have no impact on the existing water issues in Brecksville. The existing infrastructure of most cities in Ohio are antiquated and need to be improved. I will work with City Council and the City Engineer to put a plan together to continue this improvement.

I like the downtown of Brecksville, and feel that with all of the additions over the past ten years, it is very vibrant.
