“Our local government needs fresh perspectives and new voices”

I believe our local government needs fresh perspectives and new voices in order to find those solutions. 

I am fully invested in the success of this community as a parent, a property owner, and as a lifelong resident whose family has four generations of roots here. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of our town as a member of the Council, and I ask for your vote on June 26th."
