My 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.


I seek re-election to continue the work I have accomplished strengthening the City's economic base, supporting our Aviation Advisory Committee's recommendations to mitigate the airport impacts, enhancing and increasing 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 our City. 


The City continues to see exciting development! We have many economic opportunities that I have what it takes to move forward. I am endorsed by the Des Moines Police Guild and South King Professional Firefighters Local 2024. Please Vote! Again I humbly ask for Your Vote to continue working for you!  Thank you!

A great city is defined by how people feel about where they live, its offerings, and what they give back. We once had pride in Des Moines. We felt government was serving us. We were willing to help make this a better place.

But today is different. Today’s City Council votes in lockstep with little explanation. Geographically, they represent maybe a third of the city. Their version of transparency is to tell us what they did AFTER the fact. Their large building projects have not created sustainable revenues. So their remedy is to raise taxes and fees, red-light cameras, outsourcing essential functions like senior services, and giving city officials massive raises. When was the last time a city councilmember ASKED you what they should do?

I want to renew Des Moines by promoting small businesses, improving public safety, adding new parks, reducing airport impacts, and making government far more transparent.
