My Top 3 Priorities

  • I am committed to improving the quality of life for the community I grew up in.
  • I want to support a healthy community. I value all people at all stages of life. I want to prevent crime and address it effectively.
  • As we plan for growth, I believe we need to be thoughtful, inclusive and informed. As we consider affordable housing, I want voters to know that I value diversity and our housing options should reflect that.
