I was born and raised in former USSR. I came to USA with $50, 2 suit cases and no knowledge of English. I knew that I only had 50/50 chance to make it, but the sound of freedom was sweeter than slow mental and emotional decomposition under communist oppression. Life's challenges, losses, trials, betrayals made me into a tough, strong, confident, practical and no-nonsense person, - yet I am also approachable, compassionate, and open. I utterly LOVE America, American values, the American patriotism and the opportunities provided which otherwise, would not have been possible anywhere in the world. I see our freedoms being taken away and our kids being indoctrinated with hatred and trained into obedience (by Marxists). Protecting the rights and freedoms, standing up for the most vulnerable in the community -- children and elderly -- is my motivation for running.
ELECTION JUSTICE - After observing the 2020 Election and having experience with testing programs software interfaces and working in Network Security for DOD and Comptroller of the Currency I instantly knew that USA elections were no longer secure or valid. Since I started to volunteer for multiple organizations. I was also working as poll watcher in 2022. I observed with my own eyes things that would make you sick to your stomach if you care about this country. I was trying to find the answers and see who is in charge of our local elections. All roads led to County Commissioners. While there are some laws that are passed from above there are also many things that current seated commissioners Leinbach and Rivera absolutely neglected and refused to fix.
NO TAX REASSESSMENT - The conversation about county wide tax reassessments has been on Commissioners table as late as a year and a half ago. (Reading Eagle Article). With more and more counties getting reassessed around us ,- this issue is hovering over our heads. Tax reassessment would increase the taxable base for most of the residents in Berks county. Adding a co-efficient (mil) by which School Districts raise taxes will turn most home owners into tenants. With inflation rising and bank closing this makes it for a very big concern of any mid or low income residents.
SUPPORT OF AG COMMUNITY AND SMALL BUSINESSES - Last 3 years seriously impacted small business owners and farmers. Without farming there will be no food for either humans or animals alike. I am not a fan of farm land being gobbled up for warehouses and commercial operations as it has been done in last few years. Also, I understand that COVID money didnt go to suffering businesses as intended.
NO to WHO of Berks County - It is my understanding that Current Commissioners are trying to establish a Health Department like they have in Chester County. As you might know that "WHO" of Chester County kept businesses closed and enforced very costly requirements under which businesses were allowed to operate. The same mandates were applied to schools and the power was taken away from the business owners and the School Boards. Health decisions should be left to the Patient and his/her Doctor not for a bureaucratic Government agency dictate what should be implemented and how
There are other issues like prisons, Berks County Conservation District that all involve commissioners decisions. From my personal experience what they say and what they do are quite opposite things. While they full force supporting government and its overreach the average person gets pushed on a back burner. They are very much out of touch with reality of day-to-day life of an average constituent. That is why our campaign slogan became "FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE" . David Golowski and myself are running as grass root candidates against the money hungry establishment. They have the money but we've got THE PEOPLE!

There are many issues: 1) Taxes, taxes taxes! 2) Unjust and frivolous spending by our School Board (it is still true due to lack of conservative majority). 3) Curriculum which dumbs down our children and is inferior to level of private schools and European standards. 4) I have witnessed unethical compromises made by the board in the name of the almighty dollar. This bothers me greatly.
UPDATE: Sadly it still holds true with of us voting consistently against.
Understanding the tactics of subversion used by Marxists, I have a keen sense of what has happened to our school system, our political leaders, and now, what is happening to our children. We are a generation away from destroying the very American fabric of this community by turning a blind eye to the slow encroachment of the communist ideologies and corruption of morals and values. We must prevent any further erosion of our rights as parents, citizens, our children’s right, our children’s education, and the erosion of our ethos. I am a fighter! I will assure the community is kept informed and will not back down when bad policy, illegal ‘mandates’, or bullying by cancel culture attempts to silence us. I stand for your child’s well-being who are the future of our country. The mindset to always search for answers and thinking out of the box, an uncompromising moral compass, a fighting spirit to stand up for what is right rooted in faith is what I bring to the table.
I had volunteered to chaperone class trips, help in classrooms and school activities. I stepped up to the plate when teams needed assistant coaches for soccer and basketball and had offered my services even after my kids were no longer playing for Oley. Currently I am involved with Election Integrity. If the voice of the citizens is silenced and corruption overruns our electoral system then we lose America
I had asked our people and here what they said: " You are not afraid to say what needs to be said even if it is an unpopular truth" "We know you will fight for us"
I LOVE my team mates: Aaron Keller, Zack Fatkin, Candice Corle. We are the FOUR Musketeers! So different and yet united in our goals, ethos, integrity, and values for our children and our community. My life experience taught me to look beyond the immediate and to see the long game; stand tall in a face of adversity. I was taught to speak plainly and directly – to call a spade a spade – stand for the truth. I have a fierce, protective love for children and elderly and for preserving the freedoms that our nation cherishes. I am a passionate fighter with true grit! More than ever, we need people with some back bone on a school board.
