I know that very little can be accomplished if we don’t foster trust in our local decision-makers. If we don’t have the right leaders for people to believe in and depend on. I am committed to open and transparent government from enhancing open data and access to information, to improving communication among the executive and legislative branches and the public at large.

I will always value the place of the public in government processes. This means that having your “voice at the table” is not symbolic but authentically welcomed and received, and that “building the table together” is even better.
