I have been a strong advocate working hard to be very responsive to my fellow 2nd Ward residents. Engaging collaboratively with my fellow council members and community leaders, I have worked to improve the quality of life for all Newport residents.
Newport needs common sense voices to keep moving our city forward on a myriad of issues including economic development, safety, and infrastructure.
I would be honored to earn your vote so I can continue to stand up for the residents of the 2nd Ward for the next two years.
Since I joined the council, I have had the opportunity to focus on many issues and projects that help residents and businesses alike.
Looking forward, the council must continue to focus on improving Newport’s infrastructure, promoting a year round economy,improving our educational system and improving livability.
My goal is to always contribute to a high quality of life in this beautiful city that we all love.
