Virginia City Mayor

The role of city mayor can vary from city to city. However, the mayor is usually the head of the city and may represent the city in front of other government bodies. A mayor also usually has a role in proposing a city budget that is approved by the city council. The budget influences the services the city provides to its residents. Mayors sometimes are voting members of city council, and in some cities the mayor is in charge of city council meetings.

As a 6 year member of the Virginia City Council, I have learned running a city of 8400 people is a complex balance of listening to needs, wants and using resources appropriately. As a licensed teacher I know learning never stops. Volunteering with community groups and at events allows me to continue to listen to and learn from the community. Being a foster/adoptive parent connects me to the families in our community. My greatest strength is my ability to listen. Not all statements require a rebuttal. Not all questions can be answered immediately. But all voices can be heard. I will do my best to listen. Being Mayor would allow me to lead, support and encourage the continued growth of our entire community.
Community involvement. Being present at events allows for personal communication and feedback. Open office hours on a schedule. Healthy relationships build strong communities.

Continued economic development: Continued partnerships with Revive, The Virginia Foundation, Dept of IRRR, and local government will retain small business and help to grow our economy.

Youth Involvement: coordinating and creating meaningful opportunities for youth to get involved in community input and activities.
I have been on multiple ride-alongs with both police and fire. Spending time with officers has allowed me to experience policing in real life. Attending some EMS monthly trainings has allowed me the privilege of hands-on learning in winter water rescue, USAR, zero viz escapes and others. It also facilitates me asking questions in real time about how to better support the staff and serve the public. The public safety center will greatly improve the quality work life of the public safety staff.
