I would like to continue to serve the citizens of this great Town by leaning on my experience as a councilmember over the past two years. I will bring my management style of collaboration, accountability, team building, problem solving and conflict resolution that I have learned over three decades in the growing wireless industry. Further, I will always try to listen, understand and build durable relationships along the way.
