Nancy Schleicher, 65
Q. What do you see as the biggest issue for the office you are seeking?
How our city looks was the biggest complaint I heard from residents. Almost every neighborhood appears to have a home with an overgrown lawn or other violations, which impacts the appearance and value of the neighborhood. We need to enforce codes that improve our city's image and property values. After all, our homes are our biggest investment.
Q. What are your qualifications for the office you are seeking?
A. I have a proven record of leadership and dedication to Deltona, 39 year resident, taught in Deltona public schools 33 years, past president of Deltona Civic Association, former chair of Deltona Citizens Action Committee, member of the Deltona Charter Committee and the first Deltona Comprehensive Land Use Planning Committee.
Q. If you win, what's the first issue you will tackle?
Water/Sewer rates are top priority. Something needs to change.
Q. If you lose, will you continue in politics?
A. I have in the past, and will continue to be committed to service to our residents. I will continue my efforts with the Deltona Against Bullying Committee, Discovery School Advisory Committee, community projects sponsored by the Deltona Woman's Club and the city of Deltona, and work more with the senior center .
