Q. What are your qualifications for the office you are seeking?

A. My qualifications come from my career where I stepped onboard a 700-foot oil tanker as a 20-year-old officer, in charge of personnel sometimes three times my age. I was successful, as I earned my Master's License. My volunteer work throughout the county extends my leadership abilities.
