Diverse Leadership for A Better Future

I believe that affordability, accessibility, and good governance are the foundations to creating a healthy and vibrant community for us all. That shining a light on the darkness, hate, and division in our current social and political landscape can be changed. Not just by me, but by all of us working together and wanting better for ourselves and future generations.

I care deeply about the community that I live and work in. Just like everyone else that lived through the past two years of a global pandemic and feeling negative effects of job loss and concerns with public health safety. I struggled to get back on my feet after losing my job and having to figure out a new normal. I'm a small business owner, currently working at a non-profit, and staying connected and engaged on local issues by being on the Olmsted County Human Rights Commission. President of my Wednesday Night Golf League at Willow Creek Golf and Event Center.

As a community organizer, human rights advocate, and local leader I'm well equipped to bring issues to the City Council that truly effects every day people who live and work in Rochester. Too many people are being left out of our political discussion. I want to make sure I represent all voters in Ward 3.
I can be that person that brings voice to those who feel unheard and unseen. The City addresses a multitude of issues that concern us on a daily basis. I'm not going to focus on a single wedge issue, but focus on the foundation and infrastructure that keeps a world class city functioning at it's fullest potential.

Good luck to everyone who are currently running for an elected office. May the wind always be on your backs and the faith of the community be on your side.

Thank you and if you live in Rochester, MN Ward 3, consider voting for me in the General Election on November 8.
