Political Philosophy

The most important thing a mayor can do is lead the

council to a consensus and guide the council towards

establishing the long-term goals of the City. As mayor

I pledge to make city government affordable and

responsive for all residents and businesses.

One of our main challenges is to keep our water and

sewer rates from continuing to rise unjustifiably. After

being elected in 2016, I stopped a proposed water

rate increase of nearly 35% and have worked hard

to stabilize water and sewer rates while increasing

quality and ensuring reliable sources to our homes and


As mayor I will strive to keep taxes down and

improve city services. I am here for you.
