Why should voters elect you?
"As a business owner, I understand the need for positive, aggressive leadership to achieve results. I will provide a strong voice for Ward 5."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"I believe that the quality of life in our community must be addressed. We all deserve to live in a home that we can afford, send our children to good schools, feel safe and be a part of economic progress in our community. Until we hold government agencies and representatives accountable for the protection and maintenance of our ward, our community will not have the progress we deserve. I will work diligently to keep our community safe and livable for all residents in Ward 5."
