I believe that a strong community begins with service and leadership. I pride myself on being a positive ambassador for my City, always believing in community service. Our City Council is based on integrity, professionalism, and service; and I am committed to continue that legacy through hard work and community involvement. Working with a strong mayor and award-winning City departments is what keeps me loving what I do.
