My leadership and experience have had proven success.

My record of public service work has proven to be results driven and results given. I have a vision for a transparent and responsible Government that is fully accountable and responsive to us, the taxpayers. It is critical that our government is inclusive and invites and welcomes everyone to discuss and to decide our future. I am very diligent in providing quality services and protecting our personal and our property rights in the most efficient and effective manner, and in prioritizing to grow a strong and vibrant community. 

 I have always worked to provide an equitable and reliable foundation for our children, families, and individuals, and our seniors and the most vulnerable who may be at risk. I work to help all citizens achieve prosperity, honoring and celebrating the history and cultures of our community as my lifetime of experience is working with all cultures and all demographics. 

 I am eager to continue my work ensuring equality, security and contentment for us all as a united community and a united humanity. I am always working to eliminate all of the racial and ethnic disparities across our systems -- including in employment, education, housing, justice and health and human services. 

 My network of partners and I have worked together effectively to build a healthy and sustainable environment; connecting families, young adults, and businesses to opportunities that we all need to help us all succeed. 

I am very blessed to have such great and dedicated connections. 




Non partisan partnerships matter at all levels of government.

Here is a letter I received from Senator Chuck Wiger when I was reelected to my third - 4 year term at the Minnesota State Office of the Ramsey Conservation District in 2016.

I appreciate his kind words and his mention about my exemplary leadership and service and my dedication.

That my work is invaluable in preserving our great communities in Ramsey County.

* Please note that I have no political affiliations and I am still respected by people regardless of theirs.

These partnerships are critical as we move forward to recover our city from the steep decline it's in.

Creative and Critical Thinking and a Record of Positive Results

I will and I have always worked to create policy ​that would benefit and enhance our city and those that I serve while protecting the personal and property rights of our taxpayers.  My skills and experience of using Logic which is the science of how to evaluate arguments and reasoning.  The study and use of Critical thinking is a process of evaluation which uses logic to separate truth from falsehood, reasonable from unreasonable beliefs.  I studied these as a student at the University of Minnesota. 

This education is very help but my pride is that

my public service is always successful because I also use common sense and I always make the people my priority.

This is a "Green Campaign".

Our team is not putting out campaign signs and we are not going to send out massive mailings. 

 That would be taking the easy way.

This campaign wants to reach you personally.

I am working to earn your vote. Not to solicit it with wasteful advertising.

I want you to know who I am and who you are voting for.

I want to meet you and have a discussion about what you would like me to do as your Mayor.
