My work in various leadership positions throughout my career, developing teams, managing large budgets, and utilizing my strategic management and leadership skills to successfully bring teams together to complete projects assist me in my current Council position.


As your current City Council member, I seek re-election to continue the work I have done strengthening the City's economic base, supporting our Aviation Advisory Committee's efforts with the City and Port to mitigate airport impacts, improving services for our youth and seniors, and continue our City's successful financial status. I serve on several committees that address public safety, emergency management, housing and homelessness, and sustaining arts in the City.  I am a firm believer that educating our residents on how our local government works opens up dialog and understanding.


I humbly ask again for your vote so that I can continue putting my skills to work for our great City!  Thank you!

Des Moines is growing economically, we have seen large scale commercial as well as residential development happening! It is a great opportunity for our city to bring in new business and continue our growth. I have been in the Real Estate business for 13 years including working many aspects from developing, building and selling throughout those years.


I understand, been involved and know the importance of budgets and sound fiscal planning that will ensure we have a safe, fun, community to live in, where people want to raise their children.


I have lived in Des Moines for 3 years and have always admired the sense of community it possesses. Our businesses and community is the backbone of our city. As your council member I would listen diligently and thoughtfully to the voices of the people, not only as your council member but as your neighbor. Let’s revitalize Des Moines together!

I want to help restore and improve the city we all love.


We need to focus on small businesses throughout the entire city. Despite all the development, the downtown still hasn’t changed much and much of the rest of the small business community feels ignored.


Increasingly, many people throughout our town do not feel as safe as they once did. We need much improved partnerships with surrounding communities to address this now. I am thrilled to see all our new families.Welcome! So we need to do far more for Parks and Recreation. Our traditionally strong support for Senior Citizens also needs upgrading. As a lifetime sailor I will be the first councilor in a generation working hard for the Marina community and Poverty Bay. Finally, we can do a lot better in reducing the increases in air traffic. I will continue to work tirelessly on this critical health issue.
