To give my public voice a vote.
My civic life is a citizen concerned with the affairs of the community. My political life provides a vote towards accomplishing goals.
Serving as a Village Trustee is a natural progression of my community involvement for the past 11 years.
With a fresh perspective, I will guide the community as a visual and vocal leader. I will have an immediate effect as a village board member, applying knowledge and experience from committee work, as well as from attending village board meetings since 2012, and budget work sessions since 2017.
The hallmark of a strong community is a local government that is focused on its people; on serving them, on the co-creation of a place.
Local government will benefit when we move from merely serving customers to engaging citizens by bringing local government closer to the people.
Orienting towards our people and elevating our strong citizens, the people who care, will ensure we create Bellevue by design, our design.
Infrastructure and service investments through deliberate choices for pavement management to shape the community.
Expand the biking, walking, and rolling culture with safe on-road paths and off-road trails to string community neighborhoods together.
Enhance technology safety nets to ensure municipal continuity & digital connections to residents during increased volumes or in times of crisis.
