Why I should be elected
I was born and raised in Sharon and believe that the community has had a significant impact on my life and professional career. It would be an honor to be elected to be able to give back to the community. I am excited about the direction that the City is headed, but we need new voices, new faces, and new ideas to keep the momentum going. I believe that I bring all three of these to the table. My background as a CPA makes me uniquely qualified to understand the City’s finances and be able to contribute to the stewardship of tax payer funding. I will work to the best of my ability to contribute to the City’s future success.
Top three priorities
1) Continue the fight against neighborhood blight
2) Fiscal Responsibility
3) Economic Development
