Why are you running for this office?
I am running for this office because I am passionate about local government and civic engagement. I am relatively new to Helena, but I think this is a great town, and I want to do my part to make it even better.
What do you hope to accomplish in this office?
My primary goal in this position would be to ensure that Helena residents feel they have a voice in the operations of their city government and to relay their hopes and concerns to the City Commission as it considers important policy decisions. I will help the Helena Citizens Council fulfill its goal of representing the interests of residents to the City Commission.
Why should people vote for you?
I believe strongly in the importance of good governance, sound policy making, and responsible fiscal management. I also believe it is critical that local government officials keep their ears to the ground about what ordinary residents want their city to look like. I will do my part to encourage the City Commission to adhere to these principles.
