With experience in corporate America, start-ups, business ownership and support for nonprofit organizations, I have the open mind, skill set and HEART TO EARN YOUR VOTE.
My most important platform is to LISTEN AND LEARN as I represent the citizens of Ward 3 and to be a good steward of our finances, safety, and growth in our city.
Shawnee’s motto that Good Starts Here is so true.
Life in Shawnee is good and as a resident, local business owner and candidate for city council I will build upon our good strong foundation and quality of life. Shawnee is growing and our future is bright!
