Veteran • Journalist • Neighbor
My parents instilled in me the idea of service to others. I served in the USAF during the first Gulf War. I help out at foodshelves and soup kitchens. I’m part of an informal group that helps clean the yards of seniors. I work directly with homeless persons, assisting them with food and clothing. I’ve passed that ethic onto my son. He serves in the Air Force Reserves and attends college in Mankato.
I’ve included some of my ideas for Burnsville in the Issues section, but here’s my general philosophy of government: If elected, I won’t pick and choose what rights of yours I protect. I will protect all rights, civil and economic, all the time.
- I will treat you with respect and listen to your concerns.
- I’ll come to you for solutions.
- I will represent all of you. Not just my friends or people I do business with or who look like me.
- I’ll be accountable to you. After every vote, I will say how I voted and why.
If that’s what you’re looking for in a city councilperson, I’d appreciate your vote on November 8th.
