Richland Public Library Board of Trustees member from 2017 to 2022. Chair from 2020-2022.


I believe in living within my means, and I believe in the values that made America the greatest country on Earth. Richland needs a council with a problem-solving mentality. We need housing affordable enough that our families can live here. We need a city code that encourages local businesses, instead of tying them up with red tape. And we certainly don't need to turn the city into a rest stop for out-of-town commuters.

If elected to City Council, I would lead the same way as at my job -- find out directly from the source what people need to succeed, and work hard to make sure they get it. I believe that Richland deserves a city council focused on governing Richland; not on political party games, not on getting elected to higher offices, not on using the office as a platform to tell people what to think or how to run their businesses.

Does the council member you voted for have a lot of absences? If you missed that much work, would you still have a job? Whoever you vote for, hold them accountable! Let them know you expect them to show up. It's literally the least they can do.
