My Key Issues

  •  Preserve the "good life" in Fayetteville by supporting our existing businesses, encouraging new business opportunities, and implementing policies that encourage green jobs and transportation projects that are in line with the citizens of Fayetteville's desire to maintain an exceptional quality of life.
  •  Continue to maintain and expand our trail system and encourage the use of trails for both recreational use and for use as a valuable transportation option that provides safe, green, and beautiful routes to work, school, and local shopping.
  •  Work to integrate good-neighbor policies that build good relationships between our Ward 4 neighborhoods and the University.
