I went to La Porte City schools (Union) and lived here all my life.

Why are you running for office?

I am running for office because I want to take an active role in my city and to bring new ideas to the table. My vision for the city is that if we can continue to work on our infrastructure, we can gain a solid base to attract new businesses and new residents.

In four years, how will the community know if you’ve accomplished your goals?

In four years, the community will know I have accomplished my goals because hopefully there will be better streets and better communication. I know some things can’t be seen such as sewer repairs and water improvements. The public should be informed. I am only one person but it takes a community to get things done.
