Why am I running for Mayor?
These uncertain times call for experienced leadership to maintain our city’s quality of life and services while looking to addressing future challenges and opportunities for Shoreview residents.
What will I bring to the City?
First and foremost, my passion for civic involvement! In addition to City Council service over the past years, I bring collaborative experience from my business career and from working on policy matters with the League of MN Cities and leading the Ramsey County League of Local Governments in 2019. In my service with the Shoreview Economic Development Commission I’ve seen firsthand the importance of fostering business growth and retention in our community. Housing issues are always a top priority and my 5+ years’ experience with the Economic Development Authority have allowed me to work on initiatives that support affordable housing and expand programs for new and existing homeowners to purchase and/or improve their homes.
What do I hope to achieve?
It’s important to maintain focus on what has made our city successful: collaborative leadership, maintaining our high financial rating and quality of life, and keeping an eye on future needs and opportunities. My plan is to continue focusing on Shoreview economic development and on housing policy and initiatives that provide the opportunity for an optimal quality life to all of our residents.
