Why I'm running

I am a community-centric problem solver with an insatiable desire to help things improve. I have been this way as long as I can remember. 

I have a natural reflex to engage and contribute whatever talents I have to the betterment of my community. I am energized by service, and I try to give back wherever I find myself.

I am a deep listener, relationship cultivator, bridge builder, citizen advocator, and common sense problem solver who loves Lindon and wants to see it thrive for generations to come.

I feel most alive when I'm being helpful.

As cliche as it may sound, I like helping people. I welcome opportunities to serve others and my community. 

I love transforming the needs of people into collective action.

I am a pragmatic optimist. I like finding solutions. I believe that when we come together we can accomplish amazing things. I like bringing people together to rally around a common cause. 

I believe there is room at the table for everyone.

I believe everyone deserves a place at the table. Variety adds beauty and depth to life. I value seeking out people to bring them in, particularly those who feel like they are on the fringes. I love to listen and to learn from others.

Community first.

I believe that people closest to a situation know the situation best. Lindon residents are the top of our city's organizational chart. Public officials answer to them. I am running for city council to honor that hierarchy. The wellbeing of Lindon residents is my top priority.  

Responsible and sustainable development.

Utah is growing rapidly. Lindon handles development in a unique way, keeping our "little bit of country." I honor that tradition and approach. I think any development should be responsive to local residents' needs. We should be prudent  with our land while we explore growth opportunities that will be the best fit for our "little bit of country". 

Depth and breadth.

I am deeply devoted to Lindon and its residents. I have strong ties with our community. I also come with a breadth of experience having lived in radically different places. I will bring the best of those experience to my work on the city council. 

Offering what I have.

Serving in the city council would provide me an opportunity to use my professional skills to benefit the community.
