Why I’m Running

For an Ashland that works for everyone

I’ve been a lifelong public servant. Until now, I never thought of running for office. 

What changed my mind?

I love Ashland and I’m committed to the future of our community. The pandemic and Almeda Fire have taken their toll on our people, economy, and our belief in our ability to find solutions. Climate change is here in the form of smoky summers, fire risk, heat, and drought. It’s clear to me our city works for some people, but not for everyone. Like so many cities, we have a crisis of affordability and sustainability.

Hearing from our regional wildfire professionals

My career in public service has taught me people can come together despite differences to accomplish amazing things. Ashland has tremendous assets, and our wise decisions now will determine our city’s future.

If elected to the City Council, you can count on me to do my homework, ask questions first, listen attentively, act with integrity, and stay focused on solutions.

My only agenda is an Ashland that works for everyone.
