Statement: I am honored by your trust and faith shown me over the past 12 years as I served as your Kennewick City Councilmember and as Mayor.  I want to continue serving you and continue my work to make Kennewick a great place to live and raise a family.

The Covid pandemic and shutdown mandates imposed by the Governor were serious challenges requiring proven leadership.  I provided that leadership, creating safe and innovative ways for businesses to safely open and return our community to normal.  A personal challenge for me was being diagnosed with throat cancer and completing two major surgeries in 2020, yet I never stopped serving you as Mayor.  I am now blessed to be cancer free.

You elected me to serve you, and that is exactly what I have done.  I do not answer to special interest groups.  I listen, then make sound decisions that will benefit all people in Kennewick, regardless of race, gender, age, or party affiliation.  Currently 5 of your 7 Kennewick councilmembers have less than 4 years of experience.  My years of experienced leadership is needed now more than ever.  I humbly ask for your vote.
