What are your top three priorities if elected?

Did not respond

Why did you decide to run for office?

I am running to unite the city, enhance its economic well being, and continue to be a calm, smart, contributor to our community’s discussion, and to help solve problems.

How would you rate your performance over the last term: excellent, good, fair or poor? Why?

I rate my performance as a B, aiming for an A in the next two years. I think I have helped with contributing to grants for transportation, proponent of charrettes to include the entire community, and helped diversify the arts offerings.
