LEE'S SUMMIT CITY COUNCIL
My service to the community, along with my experience in the building and development sector, will benefit the city well. I know the right questions to ask. I believe there has to be a balance. Growth comes with its challenges, but great leaders work to relieve the burden on the general population and advocate for their constituency. The health, safety and general welfare of the community should always be considered first.
COLLABORATION WITH LSR-7
As someone who benefited immensely from vocational tech and trade programs, I would like to see the city and the school district partner to provide more opportunities for the students in our district. I would be an advocate for bridging the gap between the city and the school district. In order to excel as a city and as a community, we must instill a sense of cooperation and willingness to learn about and from one another.
Public safety must be a top priority. I am committed to strengthening relationships and trust among the law enforcement, firefighters, and other public safety officials by ensuring they have the resources necessary to do their jobs while also living a quality life. We must collaborate and work together to ensure our community continues to be an incredible place to live, work, and play.
