Accomplishments

I came into office with one goal in my mind: clean up City Hall and do some good for the residents of District 2. In the four years I’ve been your commissioner, my team and I listened to you and got to work. We’ve had some big wins throughout that time and I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. Hopefully, with your support, we can continue doing great things for our community.
