City Government doesn’t solve issues—people do. My deep love for American Fork drives my commitment to preserving its unique character while planning for the future. This requires us to work together, shaping a collective vision.

 

Uniting our efforts benefits both residents and local businesses. Our city's issues are complex, requiring diverse and creative approaches. As a council member, I've worked hard and take pride in our achievements, but there's more to be done.

 

We must continue to address the challenges of growth and inflation proactively. It isn’t a quick cut and dried solution. Property owner’s rights are critical and state mandates on affordable housing are real. A council member must know those things and work to find effective solutions. 

 

Ensuring our public safety personnel are properly equipped, qualified and compensated has to be our priority as well so that our kids remain safe and we have the best emergency help we need, when we need it.

 

I know what it takes, and I am willing to work as part of a great team. Working together is the only way this can happen. I would sincerely appreciate your support!
