Public Safety: Please share your vision for Public Safety under your administration.
Public safety is the most pivotal service that our city provides to its citizens. We must be fully staffed when it comes to police, fire and EMT's. When these departments are fully staffed and supported a 911 call will always have a prompt response.

As the next Mayor I will be do a pivot when it comes to economic development in our city. It is time to for our city to turn towards a new chapter.

We will focus on preserving green space and adding parks across our city. This will help us attract young people between the ages of 20-34 in the fields of science, engineering, and entrepreneurs some of which becoming small business owners in our community. Maintaining our diverse neighborhoods will help add a long-term resiliency to our city.

Partnership with OneZone Chamber of Commerce: How will you work with OneZone Chamber to ensure a thriving business community?
I grew up in a small business family. As a result, I have a great deal of respect for people that take on these kinds of risks. I also recognize this group as the largest job creators. Unique small businesses are what puts a community on the map. For these reasons I put a small business grant program together when I was a County Council for locally owned small businesses that were impacted by covid shutdowns. I will always work with one zone to create a favorable environment for small businesses to thrive. My door will always be open to them and their members.
