Why I am running

I love the city of Maplewood. It is not only where I live, it is my home. I am deeply committed to making Maplewood the best city it can be! As a person who uses a wheelchair, I see accessibility, transportation, and infrastructure through a different lens than a lot of able-bodied folks. I know my voice on these issues makes Maplewood a more livable city for everyone. I have spent many years  improving local parks and supporting business development. I would be honored to serve as your next Maplewood City Council person.
