STATEMENT TO VOTERS:
I love Decatur, and would like to be a part of shaping the city's future. I want this to be a city that my children choose to live in, once they're grown. It should be a city of promise, with great job opportunities, and a place that people are proud to call home. I have strong background in economic development and civic involvement, so I feel like I know how to get things done. I'm also someone people can talk to, and communication is so important in local government! I want our community to be proud of its local government, and to feel like they have a voice. I can be that voice for the people of Decatur.
It's time that we have a City Council that is able to get things done in a timely manner, without personal agendas. My door will always be open to citizens of Decatur, and I will always listen to your concerns. I will always tell you the truth, and I will work hard to represent you. I hope you will trust me with your support.
