Here we go again!

As of August 1, 2017 I'm officially running for reelection! Why? Because two years just wasn't enough! No, really the two biggest reasons are:

  1. We've got a lot of change around the corner: There is a lot going on this year - Burnes Park, the ARTery, Blake Road - and there will be even more over the next four - the Hopkins Pavilion, pickle ball courts, SWLRT prep. I want to be there to make sure that citizens are heard throughout the process and that we are consistently looking toward how to make our city safe, accessible, and affordable.
  2. The relationship between city staff and council is great: A well-functioning staff means that the council can focus on policy and handle the big picture, and this group lets us do just that. We had a lot of changeover in the two years I've been on council, and we are hiring some really stellar performers. I want to be there to see the next great idea brought to us, and helping them achieve the city's goals.

OK folks - now just circle November 7th on your calendars!
