I will continue to negotiate the best outcomes for our community, recognizing we are in a rapidly growing region, ensuring our Town Center, Parks and public spaces remain safe and thriving for all to enjoy. It is an honor to serve our community and to earn the endorsement of my fellow Councilmembers. I ask for your vote and support.
