I have the experience and knowledge to address the complex challenges facing our city having served on the Chanhassen City Council for the past 15 years. I understand the issues and I have always encouraged input from our residents in order to better understand their needs and concerns. I will continue to work toward resolutions that are in the best interests of the City and its residents.
While sometimes the decisions are difficult, I am proud of my voting record. The results of those votes helped to shape the decision by Money Magazine to designate Chanhassen as the 2022 Best Community to live in.
1) Making sure that the tax dollars are spent to benefit the taxpayers with the services they need and demand.
2) That public safety remains a high priority within the city budget.
3) That development continues to benefit Chanhassen by providing the correct mix of housing for young and growing families and that senior housing is offered that is affordable and desirable to meets the needs of our seniors.
As a member of city council, I receive monthly reports on the safety of our community. These reports help to direct resources from the Sheriff to areas of concern within our neighborhoods such as traffic control, break ins and thief. I annually ride along with the Sheriff's Office to talk with communities and discuss problems they may be experiencing.
As Chairman of the Chanhassen Planning Commission, I’ve become a more active listener. I believe that having more leaders who 𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮𝗰𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗶𝘁𝘆 will inevitably create more trust in government. We need more of this everywhere and I’m starting here. I actively listen to all sides of an issue and work to bring people together on solutions, while protecting what makes Chanhassen so great. As a proud husband and father of 3 young children, the single greatest motivator for me is to make them proud of where they’re from by making this place even better than it is today, and finding new ways to give back to this fantastic community! My agenda is you!
I believe we serve all residents, and will have a key focus on three areas:
1)Protect what makes Chanhassen great - 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗹𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀, 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗸𝘀 & 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗽𝗲𝘀 and the ways we bring them to life for the community
2)Actively looking to 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 to our city
3)Ensuring a continued focus on 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗼𝗿 𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀, so that Chanhassen can live up to the phrase "A Community for Life"
Our public servants do a great job of keeping Chanhassen residents safe, but no one knows the details of their own neighborhood like the residents themselves. We need an “always-on” feedback loop from residents to alert the city to situations that may threaten public safety. The City of Chanhassen unveiled their new “See-Click-Fix” app last year, where residents can report all types of issues, but adoption has been slow. I have a lot of energy to change that and unleash its full potential.
