Medina is an amazing community, a special small town at the edges of bigger cities. I came to Medina’s Council in 2018 as a lawyer, parent of two young boys, Planning Commission member, and former Medina Days co-chair. With those experiences, and now deeper knowledge from a first term on Council, I am running to continue serving this community as we strive to stay unique and family-friendly amidst the pressures of regional growth.


As a council member and the current Mayor, I’ve pushed for priorities that benefit residents, including: increased traffic safety efforts; responsible and clear budgeting (now the city provides a detailed “Budget in Brief” memo); and community forums. I will continue to work for transparency, accountability, community-building, respectful well-organized meetings, proactive management and pragmatic problem-solving.  


I enjoy discussing city issues, and I’m always open to hearing different residents’ perspectives and concerns.  I would very much appreciate your support.
