My wife and I settled in Lebanon because we love the character and the community. I am running for council to ensure balanced, positive community growth. I believe my unique perspective, strong technical background and proven leadership abilities will help the city execute plans and services with excellence. 

Issues:

  • Empower the Community
    • Local government is a tool to provide foundational resources and support to empower the residence and build a vibrant community.
    • As a citizen, I attend city meetings and engage council and staff regularly. 
    • As a council member, I will prioritize face to face time with you and to keep you in the loop.
  • Community Infrastructure and Enrichment​
    • Roads are essential in any city, and we must prioritize and fully fund our maintenance programs to avoid costly repairs and past mistakes.
    • We must continue to support our core public safety services. Working with the Citizens for a Safer Lebanon, we took important steps in properly funding the Fire Dept.
    • Lebanon’s public spaces and resources are a reflection of our vibrant community, and we need to enrich existing parks and trails; increase public awareness and find new options for families. 
    • Continued support of civic nonprofits that drive humanitarian efforts, beautification programs and the characteristic Lebanon events. 
  • Balanced Economic Development
    • How do we grow but still keep our small town feel?
    • Balanced development does not mean just incentivising large companies, organizations and developers. We must include growth of new, truly small businesses and shops. That is why I was a vocal advocate for the new small business grant that will diversify and maximize our investment impact while maintaining our Lebanon character.   
    • As a business owner, I understand what it takes to succeed, and as a senior scientist at P&G I have honed my leadership skills and gained experience in assessing new business startups.

Together we can ensure balanced, positive community growth.
