WHy I’m Running

I’m running for City Council because I believe in the fundamental idea of a government that serves the people and works for the betterment of our community.

I’m running to do what ought to be done, but isn’t getting done, and to get the focus at City Hall back on truly serving the people.

I’m not a career politician – I’m a firefighter, a Navy Reservist and I’m raising my family right here in our community. I see firsthand where City Hall is falling short and I know how to fix it.

As your Council Member, I’ll never forget who City Hall is supposed to be serving: our neighborhoods and our families. On the City Council, I’ll fight to:

· Invest in the quality city services our neighborhoods depend on, not just downtown.

· Tackle the homeless crisis with common sense solutions we know work.

· Implement comprehensive plans to tackle climate change and protect against wildfires.

· Improve emergency response times and strengthen neighborhood safety.

As a firefighter, I see people on their worst days and I have to be at my best. I know what service really means. It would be my honor to fight for you and serve our neighborhoods on the City Council.
