Many thanks to the wonderful people of the First Ward for electing me to be their representative. I will do my best for you. I remember the things we talked about when I visited with many of you in your homes. Whenever possible, I will push for those things to happen. 

I will make an effort to find a path toward better communication and understanding between citizen and city. 

Good things happen when we look ahead rather than back. Let’s work together to find ways to get things done instead of finding reasons why things cannot be done.

I am grateful for your votes. Thank you.
