my focus will be on Building a Better Future…Together!
Since I was introduced to government and politics back in grade school, I became intrigued with the process and people. Helping make decisions that impact a broad population seemed like a pretty important job. I have always been the type of person who is willing to speak up, so I found early interest in leadership-type roles. During my first college experience, I found myself in the role of Student Senate President, and more recently I served as Council Member for the City of Arden Hills.
As much as people do not like government "meddling in their business", I truly believe there needs to be leadership in place to address the needs of a community and stand strong during difficult times of indecision and distress. In politics, traction is often lost because of the lack of interest or capacity to sustain a particular topic of interest. Many people can share beliefs and ideas on what they’d like something to look like for a few days, though most are not equipped to partake in a lengthy operation that spans years.
When I started considering to get back into politics in 2016, I was contemplating where I would best fit in. While I continued to position my small business in a financial situation that would afford me to act on future endeavors, I began to line up my next move. On September 26, 2017 I was appointed to the Ramsey County Capital Improvement Program Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CIPAC) where I am still a member. This past December, I began making my interest in running for County Board more public. When I began to hear and read more about the progress (or lack) of the Rice Creek Commons Development, the calling became louder and louder. During my experiences thus far, I have developed working relationships with people in the District and Ramsey County as a whole. I will be able to step into this position and have a positive impact from the get-go. Serving our community as Ramsey County Commissioner feels like the next natural step in my career.
Thank you for your consideration in this very important role!
