Why do you want to be Ward 4 Alderman?

Why do you want to be Ward 4 Alderman?

A:

I don't see serving as Ward 4 Alderman as the start to my service to the Franklin community, it is a continuation of my years of service to our community. I want to serve in the community where Amy and I have chosen to raise our children. Serving to ensure the Franklin of their future is at the core of why I am running. I have met so many people in this community who long to keep Franklin special and unique, and I believe I am uniquely qualified to do this job. 

I am running to:

  • Ensure the continued strength of our local economy and the financial stability of our city government
    • Through sound fiscal policy focused on living within our means as a city. 
    • Supporting our local entrepreneurs, shop keepers and retailers businesses that make Franklin a great place to live and work. 
  • Keep our city safe and healthy
    • Supporting our Police & Fire Departments 
    • Promoting connectivity and our city parks systems for recreation and active healthy living throughout the city. 
  • Protect and preserve the things residents love most about Franklin
    • Prioritizing citizen quality of life through controlled growth and a focus on solving our traffic issues
    • Preserving our historic properties and assets and encouraging the telling of the full story of our city's history
    • Advocating for Franklin's values- hospitality, faith, family, a welcoming spirit, historic charm, traditions, charity and service to our neighbor.
