I want to play an active role in my community and my town where I am raising a family. I grew up in Culpeper, it’s my home and I want to continue to make Culpeper a place where families can put down roots. We have been fortunate to have great leaders on our City Council who prioritize service to our city. I want to learn from them so that I can help continue the impressive trajectory of our city.

What are your top three issues for the town of Culpeper?

I want to support and foster a safe and healthy environment in which children can grow. This includes exploring more opportunities for the community to have fun and come together – for example, festivals celebrating our community’s achievements, cultural celebrations, skills development offerings and community activities. training events. Investing in our residents is the best way to build a strong community.

I want to continue to build a connection between the city and the county, especially when it comes to our schools and the school board. I want to explore new ways for the city to support our educators, including opportunities to make Culpeper an attractive and affordable place to live and hopefully stay. As a parent, I deeply understand the importance and impact of a strong school system on our community.

I am also invested in our city’s disaster preparedness. I want to make sure Culpeper is ready for anything. From the recent floods in Jackson, Mississippi, to Hurricane Ian, to wildfires across the West, we are continually reminded of how easily needed infrastructure and services can be disrupted or completely destroyed. Engaging in an honest discussion and assessment of our preparedness for extreme conditions is of the utmost importance if we are to secure the future of our city and protect our most vulnerable and at-risk communities.

What are your top three issues for the town of Culpeper?

The City and the Council work daily on many files. It is an ongoing process. This effort does not reset after each election to accommodate a candidate’s ranting that the sky is falling. My main issues are irrelevant. I have always made it clear that I have no agenda. I believe that the needs of the City and its citizens should be the driving force behind Council’s actions. As long as we remain good stewards of our resources and revenues and meet the needs of citizens, Culpeper will continue to be a great little town.
