I would love the opportunity to serve my neighbors in Ward 1. I have a great deal of experience and understanding of both city and county government. I manage a large budget as a part of my daily work and am fiscally responsible and I ensure positive outcomes. I am also a former city council member and can hit the ground running in my Ward 1 role. I am not afraid to tackle tough issues and will do my best to represent and uphold the Constitution of the United States and the State of Minnesota. While I have my own beliefs, I will be elected to serve my neighbors and will do my best to listen to each person and weigh the decisions based on feedback, not on how I may benefit. I would very much appreciate your vote for Ward 1.
My top three priorities include: ensuring public safety through recruitment, retention, and succession planning; developing affordable and quality housing, and continuing with sound economic development. With the upcoming retirement of our Chief and the issues facing law enforcement today, it is important to both support our officers and ensure they are providing consistent and appropriate oversight for all residents. In addition, quality housing is lacking in our community.
It is important, with the upcoming retirement of our Chief, that we look to succession planning and ensuring the new Chief is on board with building relationships in the community. Sound leadership is essential to the culture of the police department and to building relationships. In addition, we can strengthen partnerships with community service agencies and provide mental health support to officers and the people they come into contact with. Our officers cannot be all things to all people.
