I plan to contribute to Council a sense of civility that encourages cooperation and transparency. The City has given me, my wife and two adult kids a great life filled with good people with good intentions, even if we don’t always share the same political views. I feel it's time for me to give back.

My Priorities Read All

  • Creating a council that puts our neighbors first over political ambitions
  • Increase home ownership and retain home ownership in struggling neighborhoods
  • Improve relationships between police and the black community
  • Focus on reducing the high percentage of our kids living in poverty
  • Implement smart development in the city that puts incentives where they are needed and addresses affordable housing needs
  • Aid for small businesses struggling in the pandemic
  • Closing the health gap that disproportionately hurts people of color
  • Increase access to transportation allowing better access to jobs, schools, healthcare and food resources
