Identify your top three (3) issues that you wish to address during your tenure in office and rank them in order of priority.
Ensure that the public safety services provided in Carmel are top quality, trained well, and responsive to the needs of the community.
Provide experienced leadership on the city council that is open, transparent, and accessible to the residents of the North Central District.
Continue to provide world-class amenities and services to the community while keeping our taxes low.
What do you believe is the role of the City Council in our community?
The City Council’s role is to be a leader that ensures the voices of the residents and businesses in the community are heard and brought forward in the operations of Carmel’s government. Without strong city council members who are involved in the community, the government becomes disconnected and cannot properly serve the needs of that community. It’s vital to be out and about, talking to everyone and bringing ideas, concerns, and opportunities back to the council as a whole to take action.
What experiences and qualities do you think makes you the best candidate for this position?
I am a lifelong Carmel resident and business owner who has the right combination of experience, skills, and leadership to serve on the city council. I’ve been heavily active in the community for years and have worked hard to understand the needs of the North Central District. I understand finance, budgets, and how to connect with people. I have a proven record of tackling challenges head on with a genuine and pragmatic approach.
How will you work with OneZone Chamber to ensure a thriving business community?
I have been heavily involved in OneZone for many years, and currently serve as the chair of OneZone Women’s Network. I have enjoyed building relationships with OneZone’s staff and volunteer leadership and have been heavily engaged with the Carmel business community. As a member of the city council, I look forward to continuing to grow my role and relationships with OneZone and their members.
OneZone is a strong, unified voice that works closely with residents, non-profit organizations, and Carmel’s government to ensure that all stakeholders are moving in the same direction. As a member of the city council, I will work tirelessly alongside OneZone to ensure that the needs of the business community are addressed. I will ensure that collaboration between the business community and government leads to continued successes.
