It’s been my privilege to serve you. I’m running for re-election because I want to continue investing in our community, to preserve the qualities that make Medina wonderful and ensure efficient delivery of high-quality public services. 


During my tenure, Council secured development of a novel solution for the SR-520 expansion-joint noise, restarted discussions about potentially undergrounding utilities, and, in careful consultation with retired wireless executives from our region, developed reasonable requirements to facilitate residents’ access to 5G technology while preserving community aesthetics and protecting residents’ health, privacy and security. 


On Council, I will continue to prioritize fiscal responsibility, public safety, and walkability, and leverage problem-solving skills and local talent to push for feasible and cost-effective solutions. I commit to listening with a careful ear, and sustaining the professional pride and passion of our conscientious and dedicated City staff, police, elected officials, and volunteers. I would be grateful for your vote!
