I am extremely passionate about the community of Valley and it’s residents. I have demonstrated this numerous times through community projects including organizing events, flood relief efforts and serving on several other non-profit boards and the City Council. In addition, I have the experience and skill set needed to help the City of Valley navigate the growth spurt that began several years ago to ensure we are making the most practical decisions for our city and residents long term
To continue to upgrade the City’s technology platforms to better serve our residents and employees and evaluate employee wages and benefits. Upgrading outdated technology will create easier access to City services and efficiencies for City employees in their day to day jobs. These efficiencies and investments for City employees will allow them more time to take a proactive approach in assisting residents.

We need to do a better job of encouraging and enticing small business growth within our community. 3) Technology: We need to invest in technology and our current employees to more resourceful and proactive.
