What's my "WHY?"
The past several years have shown our community one thing: we've got big issues to solve. I'm running for City Commissioner here in the 1st Ward to help our community address complex issues and create meaningful change. Growing up in a small military town, I understand the meaning of hard work. Coupled with my passion for people - and my personal drive for excellence - it would be an honor to represent the residents of the 1st Ward.
I believe in the importance of people-first policy that provides a safe environment for all. I believe in creating an environment that fosters innovation, coupled with community partnerships that ensure all benefit from the fruits of our hard work. I believe our natural resources - parks, recreation, the River - are some of our most valuable assets and contribute to our unique culture. Read more about my PRIORITIES here.
