I am energized by the opportunity to further serve the public, which has been something I have done my entire life, in both the public sector and non-profit arena -- as illustrated by my active involvement in the community for the past decade.
I believe I am the best person to represent Ward 2 -- given my decade of service to the community; experience already working for the community; and track record of responsiveness.
In sum, I view Westlake as a wonderfully well-run community, and have made it a point to support and work with all our city leaders such as Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough and State Representative Nan Baker, who amongst many others support and endorse my candidacy to become the next Ward 2 Councilman.
