As a Cavalry Scout in the 101st Airborne Division in Baghdad, Iraq, I learned what true leadership means: self-sacrifice, commitment to the mission, and pushing forward until the mission is accomplished.
A leader asks questions and works to understand the challenges others face. As mayor, I will be accountable to all the citizens of Plymouth and will seek your input and ideas, involving our community members in the development of this city’s future.
A leader is proactive, and plans for both difficult and successful times. Instead of waiting for things to happen, and then reacting, a leader should be in the trenches, working alongside others to move projects and initiatives forward.
This city deserves a mayor who isn’t afraid to address the most pressing issues our community faces, from homelessness and mental health, to job creation and reasonable tax policies.
The residents of Plymouth deserve a leader who will actively work to seek solutions and answers on their behalf.
As the leader of Plymouth, I’ll do just that, putting the needs of local families and small businesses above all else.
Jobs & ECONOMY
When Plymouth’s small businesses succeed, we all benefit. Every day, businesses in this community create products and provide services that enhance and enrich our lives. At the same time, they employ people who rely on these jobs to provide for their families.
Unfortunately, Plymouth’s small businesses have been neglected for too long. Instead of working diligently to help grow local small businesses, the current mayor has passed over and ignored our small businesses by shipping local tax dollars to businesses in other cities and states.
Our city needs to attract and retain dynamic small businesses and startups to become competitive in the business community. These companies are the lifeblood of our community and are vital to the growth and well-being and of our families.
As a small business owner myself, I understand the challenges an owner, their employees, and their families can face. As mayor, I will work closely with our local small businesses, ensuring their voices are heard, and that they have the opportunity to grow to their full potential.
By partnering with local organizations, I will work to make Plymouth a highly attractive and competitive city to start a new business or relocate a growing business.
Not only that, but I believe the city should work with our local businesses at every available opportunity. Spending tax dollars with local businesses keeps that money local, helping to grow the economy and supporting small businesses and the families who run them.

TRANSPARENCY & Communication
Knowing what’s happening in Plymouth should be the right of every citizen, not a privilege of a few people with the right connections. If you’ve ever wondered how things work in local government but didn’t know where to find answers, things are about to change.
As a tax-paying citizen of Plymouth, you deserve to know how your money is being spent. You deserve to know what to expect when new projects are kicked off. And you most certainly deserve to hold your elected officials accountable.
By offering clear and easy-to-understand communication channels, I will empower the people of Plymouth not only to hear what’s happening in the city but to have their voices heard.
I will implement regular listening sessions, coffee meetings, town halls, and more to ensure I hear from everyone. Not only that, but by using technology like a new website, video streaming, and other digital tools, I will ensure every person has access to public meetings, agendas and minutes, and plans for the future of our city.
I believe it is the duty of the mayor to be an advocate for every single person in Plymouth, and I will always have an open door policy for all.
Let’s get to work.
