Proven, Patriotic, Passionate
I am running for election to listen to your concerns, be the champion of your values, and the defender of our way of life.
Three generations of my family live in Lakewood, Two Generations were born here - we all call Lakewood home. It's not only Lakewood by heritage, but it's Lakewood by choice!
When my Grandma and Grandpa first moved to Lakewood in the early 1960's it was a much smaller community with dirt roads, farms, and a handful of stores. As my family grew in size and spread about, Lakewood did the same. The roads were paved, business prospered, and families flourished. We all inherited a great city to enjoy!
Lakewood is not only a place on a map, or a great location to live - it is our home, where we raise our families, where we choose to retire, and where we enjoy our lives. No other two words, thoughts, or phrases can describe Lakewood more truthfully or more humbly than : Our home.
Like every home imaginable, it has its challenges. Over the past decade, Lakewood has dramatically and fundamentally changed. More open space has been developed, the population has exponentially increased, and our crime rate has ticked higher and higher. These challenges are monumental to solve, but the opportunities are overflowing if we are persistent. Instead of brushing these issues aside, I will have conversations with you so we can set our minds to achieving, to create a solution that is not only practical, but also responsible for our kids and grandkids.
If you give me the opportunity to represent and serve you on City Council, I pledge to:
Listen to all of your concerns
Protect and improve our natural open space
Safeguard/ improve our parks
Safeguard/improve our sporting fields
Improve and fix our roads and sidewalks
Be the champion for your concerns and values at council meetings.
That is my pledge to you.
With your support and vote, we will come together with our problems and ideas, and set our minds to achieving so we can tackle the issues facing our home responsibly, strategically, and professionally.
Please reach out to me with your questions, comments, and stories of Lakewood. Its up to us to keep Lakewood our home.
