I will restore resident trust and office credibility, first, by listening respecting, responding and acting on a timely basis. Not a member of a political party, I will discourage partisanship. I will ensure consistent, careful budgeting and active grant seeking. The City Council under my leadership will apply fresh perspective and new energy to enduring concerns, from flooding to parking, sidewalks, roads and fields.
Rye is small and highly-developed – there is affordable housing under construction; however, current land availability and pricing may make additional opportunities difficult to find.

Consensus, collaboration, community and common sense.
As mayor, I helped create approximately 40 units of affordable housing. We would certainly consider other suitable projects.
