I am running because I am passionate about service and serving the local community. I am passionate about protecting property rights, maintaining our high home values in Gilbert, and supporting our schools and public safety personnel. Gilbert has experienced exponential growth. Significant companies like Deloitte, Morgan Stanley, and GoDaddy have called Gilbert home. We want to continue to make Gilbert the Town that attracts exceptional businesses. We must continue to have a skilled and educated workforce for that to happen. This is done by creating programs that provide visibility to this workforce and making sure that they hire the best employees who live locally in our Town. As our town continues to experience the development of a skilled workforce, I will make sure that they leverage their skills in the local businesses. This includes prioritizing hiring a skilled workforce in our town and having training and development to upskill these individuals to be critical contributors at work. As a business strategist, I have done this throughout my career by developing initiatives and approaches that match the right skill set to the right employers. As a town councilman, I will continue champion ideas that help our local businesses.
