A trustworthy and dedicated steward of your resources and interests.
With any candidate for any office, my voting criteria comes down to three items:
Trust – Do I believe you enough to follow you?
Experience – What have you done?
Commitment – What’re you gonna do for me?
For more than a decade and a half, I have served on committees, Council, the Eastern Regional Board, and as a trustee of the Equity-League Pension & Heath Funds and the Equity staff pension fund. My experience with the finances of these massive funds (totaling well over $1.8 billion in assets) is based on a foundation of continuing education in investments, portfolio construction, asset allocation, and various asset classes including emerging markets, real estate, private equity, and hedge funds. I take my fiduciary responsibility very seriously, and I have proven myself a trustworthy and dedicated steward of your resources and interests.
I want to keep protecting our future, and for that I need your vote.
