Office Desired: Hermitage City Commissioner
Why I should be elected
I was elected to my first term 15 years ago. Since that time I have worked to focus on improving our more mature neighborhoods (The Neighborhood Investment Program). Protecting neighborhoods from inappropriate rezoning requests and I supported the rental ordinance. I also worked with other communities to establish the animal shelter as a free standing non-profit. We are now working on developing a new shelter.
Top three priorities
1. Continue the Neighborhood Investment program
2. Continue to work with the staff in making Hermitage a place to attract and keep businesses and industry
3. Protect our neighborhoods with a strong rental ordinance
