My three and a half years as Ward 1 City Councilor have been an enormously rewarding experience. As any present or past councilor will tell you, it takes at least a year or two to “learn the ropes” and be able to successfully accomplish major goals for your constituents.

During my tenure, I’ve forged constructive relationships with my colleagues on council, as well as Mayor Lucy Vinis and City Manager Sarah Medary. Please visit my “Accomplishments” page to learn about some of my successes.

I can assure all Ward 1 voters, that I am ready to hit the ground running in 2021.
