My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase spending on public safety to combat the rise in Lakewood crime.
  • Provide leadership to protect city programs demonstrating an efficient return on your investment, and re-examine programs failing to meet your standards.
  • Advocate for increased Federal Community Development Block Grant funding (CDBG) to renew and reconnect blighted East Lakewood neighborhoods to the community.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Small government tends to be the most efficient government.  I support contracting out city services to private vendors, collaborating with community stakeholders to resolve city challenges, and maintaining a balanced budget.
