 Climate Protection, Resiliency, and Sustainability

Collaborative and Effective Government 

I have a proven track record of working with my council colleagues, community leaders, and regional partners to forge consensus on important issues. I will continue to drive streamlining government bureaucracy and ensuring transparency and accountability. Read more here.
