My Background

My Background

My number one issue is jobs, job development, and job creation. Another top priority is high quality police protection for the city. Also aging neighborhoods in the city need stepped up neighborhood vitality programs.

I recognize the need for economic development across all business types and sizes.

Good jobs will keep our most talented in our community. My goal is to help our city advance to a place where people want to live, work, and raise their families.

Therefore I want to serve as a tool to make our city a place where citizens can have productive careers. I believe it is important for our city government to work with great care to foster relationships with current area employers to create job opportunities for the community.
