Why Am I Running?
Elkhart is a special city. It is diverse culturally and has plenty of opportunities for work and fun. Several generations of my family have thrived in Elkhart and I want to support others as they flourish, too.
We are better, stronger, and brighter together. My thoughts and decisions are always guided by what is good for the community. Sometimes that community has been for a team or organization, while other times it is my classroom. Several teams I have coached, Academic Decathlon and Girls Tennis, have achieved at a high level and advanced far into the State tournament. The kids and athletes deserve all the credit for the success, and I am grateful for the memories and fun along the way.
While on the Redevelopment Commission it has been the good of Elkhart guiding me. I hope you will extend to me the opportunity to humbly consider and act upon what is best for this great community as a member of the Elkhart Common Council.
