I’m running for Plymouth City Commission because I want to make smart decisions for our community.
I’m extremely proud to call Plymouth my home. Plymouth is vibrant, quintessentially small-town America, and truly the gem of Michigan. Over the past decade or so, Plymouth has undergone immense growth and vitalization, but this also challenges us to create coherent and positive citywide plans. I want to use my background as a detail-oriented communicator and problem solver to promote our culture of community that we value so dearly. To accomplish this, I plan to focus on these key points as a Commissioner:
Transparency Through Explanation
I will explain all of my votes as a Commissioner in writing on this page. It is important that as a representative for the residents of Plymouth that I not only make smart and positive decisions, but that I explain my reasoning.
Increasing Communication and Participation
While the Plymouth City government has dutifully and admirably provided this community with good services, I believe that more can be accomplished with improved dialogue between the City Commission and the Boards, but also with the residents. I will work to facilitate better exchange of information by attending Board and Sub-Committee meetings regularly, while working to increase resident participation in these open meetings.
As Plymouth grows and changes, new ordinances and regulations are instated for well-meaning causes. I plan to utilize my data-driven background to introduce tools that tell us if these changes are indeed having the intended purpose.
