Experience 5 Terms Wy.City Council. Extensive Wyoming volunteer leadership. 27 years top selling realtor. Relocation Mger, Cinti Development Dept: 8 employees, multi-million dollar budget plus lobbying for local economic development at the state level.
Endorsements Have not requested any as this is a non-partisan race
Political Philosophy I believe that government at its best is local. This is where our important basic services are provided-police, fire,water, public maintenance, recreation, etc. It is where people can talk directly to their representatives and receive prompt response. Sound fiscal management is a must as local government cannot operate at a deficit unlike the federal government. Money can be borrowed but at the end of the year, spending cannot exceed income.
5 terms on Council. Have served on every comm. Now: Public Safety Chr, Planning Comm Rep,, Bldings& Equip Com. Significant Wy vol. leadership: Past Pres of JWC,PSA, Hist. Soc., Woman’s Club, May Fete Co-Chr, Village Historic District achievement.
1-Finances:stretch $ by constant review,grant apps,new ideas such as city/school collaboration on communication/ maintenance. 2-Springfield Pike.Due to the tremendous cost of redoing a crumbing Pike, applying to for state/ federal $. was critical.The $6.8M grant gave us the required “ Road Diet”design . We must ensure that it works well.. 3-Safety in this age of opioid crises challenges every community in the metro area. Our vigilance must rise to the occasion to protect all of us.

Education JD Univ. of Virginia, BA cum laude Boston College, 37 years as med/law professor
Occupation Professor, UC College of Medicine, and retired P&G manager
Experience Civic volunteer, council member, author 52 textbooks, head of county board, exec com of OKI Regional Council of Govts; exec com of First Suburbs Consortium, lectured internationally, former state police officer
Political Philosophy Elected officials are working for the public and deserve to be questioned about their results. No single philosophy can dominate the individual’s response to the needs of the public. This is a true service opportunity and deserves hard work, intelligent listening skills, and a willingness to adapt and improve.
I listen, I care, and I respond. Winning protection for our I-75 Galbraith exit and actively protecting against 2022 I-75 Millsdale exit challenges have marked my hundreds of hours of concentration on saving our city's infrastructure.
Minimize long term effects of Pike reconstruction; draw in more state funding for transportation improvements; as former police officer, help our excellent Wyoming PD to deter criminals from attacks within our city.

Occupation I’m an essayist and journalist, focusing on social justice issues. I have published in The New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, Vogue, Marie Claire, CNNMoney and frequently write for Cincinnati Magazine.
Experience In addition to writing, I have a history in the nonprofit sector. I taught and worked in literacy programs, advocated for environmental conservation, served people living with HIV/AIDS, and consulted with Natural Resources Defense Council.
Political Philosophy When a person represents a community (from the local to national level), they are given a sacred trust: they must listen. They may not agree, but be open to being persuaded, to finding common ground. Leaders owe it to their constituents to be as transparent and as available as possible. Public service is just that: service. It is an opportunity to listen to a community’s needs, connect those who share interests, and find solutions that lift everybody up.
I have years of experience in nonprofit advocacy working for social progress, as well as the careful habits of a journalist. I do deep-dive research to understand issues, seek multiple opinions for nuance and communicate clearly with the public.
Environment: Building on Wyoming’s environmental ethos to bake green innovation into our infrastructure and planning for the future.

Sustainable growth: Supporting our small businesses and individual proprietors, attracting more local businesses (without changing the face of our historic city), to help diversify the city’s revenue streams.

Transparency: Modernizing communication flow from council so constituents can be better informed about decisions that will impact them and their families.
