What are your priorities for your community?
As a father of four, I am focused on the long term continued evolution of the Village and highlighting elements that heighten the family experience for my neighbors. Parks, sidewalks, shopping, and restaurants that offer local options for Village residents are just a small portion of focuses I will support and endorse. In addition, continued engagement between neighbors and enhanced trasnparency in local goverment direction will be a focal point of my potential term as a council person. Poland Village has always had a positive reputation in the community and I hope my influence in local goverment will maintain and strengthen this reputation.
What policies, if any, will you support to promote diversity and inclusion in your community?
I have not yet had an opportunity to review any specific policies related to diversity and inclusion, but recognize that Poland Village offers opportunity in both these areas. I have and will always continue to support policies that help encourage growth in these areas.
