Hard work, civility, and cooperation built our amazing city of safe neighborhoods, great schools, and prosperous businesses. It wasn’t an accident.

I have been involved in our schools and community as an elected official and as an engaged member, being involved with local and regional boards and committees.

I am no stranger to making tough decisions during challenging times. I am a good listener and a very quick learner. I am very familiar with governance and how to work as a team for the best outcomes. Our community has been dealing with one crisis after another for years: fires, floods, a pandemic, school closures, business closures, mass power outages, etc. I am a problem solver by nature, and I enjoy working with people and hearing their ideas on how to make things work even better.
