Quote: “I hope to bring diversity to the board — that's one of the biggest things I see lacking in the Beaver County area. I think that having another viewpoint matters. I like to take action, but at the same time I listen to everybody. I see the holes and gaps, and my goal is to find that gap and fill it.”
