What is unique about your District?
“The 3rd District has a great mix of single-family, multi-family, open space, and the county bike/walking path. My family has enjoyed living in the 3rd District for the past 12 years, and has spent a total of 26 years in Oak Creek.”
Why did you choose to run for Aldermen?
“I served on the Oak Creek Community Development Authority for nine years, and decided I could help the CDA, my neighbors in the 3rd District, and the city as a whole by serving on the Council.”
