The time is now for our municipality to catch up to the needs of our residents, shed the small town mentality, and become the city we already are. Faster, friendlier, and higher levels of service are expected from City Hall. We are in desperate need of recreation facilities. Looking ahead at public-private partnerships and other progressive means of reaching our potential is why I want to be part of the next Council.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team

We’re at a crossroads. We have major issues to solve all the while playing catch-up with our parks and recreation facilities, we must recover the ground we've lost. It’s time for us to move forward. To diligently pursue what’s eluded us for so long: progress and change.
