My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fiscal Responsibility - We must institute a culture of savings, earmark new revenue streams and address our pension liabilities
  • Public Safety - We must upgrade pedestrian and bicycle safety on our streets so that all our residents can enjoy a multimodal lifestyle.
  • Sustainability - We must promote being as sustainable as possible in all the decisions our City Council makes

Since moving to MB in 2014, I have been fully committed to giving back to our special little community.  I joined Neighborhood Watch and became a Block Captain. I now serve as the Area Coordinator for El Porto.  I have served on the Boards of Directors of the Residents Association, the Conservacy and Leadership MB.  I recently started volunteering with the Botanical Garden and served as a mentor in the Chamber of Commerce's Young Entrepreneur Program.  Now, I would like to set my skills and experience at the service of our city.
