Why are you running for this office?
I hope to continue strengthening community partnerships, increasing business development, furthering our city infrastructure projects, improving our financial stability, ensuring our students have the resources they need to succeed, and building upon our renewed sense of community pride. Over the last four years, we have accomplished incredible milestones to transform our “All-America” City; we’ve led the way in increasing economic development, made government more accessible, created efficiencies through energy and innovation, reduced homelessness, and invested in the future of our youth.
