Why should you be elected
I bring experience-change and integrity. I have represented union members for almost 30 years for the largest public employee union in the State and understand the importance of communication. I believe I bring a skill set to the table unlike what is currently there.
Top three priorities
Transparency and communication with residents is a must-improve city parks and make more family friendly-monitor local roads for repair and improvement.
