“It has been an honor to connect with friends, neighbors, and citizens throughout this campaign to represent you as your City Councilman. I am seeking to serve you as your voice on City Council because I have always believed that serving others is the noblest of missions. Service to others has been a part of my life from my younger days in the Navy, to my work as a Registered Nurse, to my current role of assisting doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals with the use and power of technology to improve health.
As I have gone door to door across our Great City I have listened to you and it has reinforced my strong belief in the strength and resolve of our community. I have had the privilege of sharing my desire to continue to ensure the Health, Safety, and Success that Maumee has enjoyed.
I believe that this will only continue to be possible as we work together to deliver on the expectation that our families, friends, and neighbors have of the opportunity to work, live and flourish in a community that recognizes the importance of these values.
This is my personal goal and commitment and this is my pledge to you that I will continue to deliver upon each and every day that I serve you on your City Council.”
