Summary

This journey is not about me, this is about people, YOU, your families and our community.  In light of what is happening in the world all around us I felt the sense of responsibility to stand up for what is right, in the midst of chaos and diversions.  I believe in showing my children that they should stand up for what they believe in and to not underestimate the power of the truth.  I want to show them that sometimes it is hard but you have to have faith in yourself and in God to do what is right.  I believe in freedom and in parents right's for our children.  I believe that our city should be a safe place to grow up in.  I believe there should be growth and expansi0n in our community while maintaining our history and preserving our culture.  I believe in a community where everyone can thrive, especially our kids, no matter where they come from, the opportunities should be the same.  I believe in freedom from mandates and that our history should be taught, the good, bad and the ugly.  We should be proud of our country and all the wonderful things we have here in the great United States of America.  I want to represent you.  Please reach out to me if you have ideas, questions or any ways you can see my helping our community in any capacity.
