As our community grows and we welcome more people to Lafayette, we become a more interesting and diverse place to live. The unique gifts that each of us bring to this area also include many different ideas and viewpoints on issues. As a council member, I am elected to represent my constituents, so I always listen and respect their opinions. As a member of this community, I also have an opinion and I will represent my constituents and myself as best as I can on any social issues that come before the council.

There will always be hot–button issues. It is important to honor the traditional values of the citizens within District 4 and vote accordingly. Taxpayers should not be called upon to fund events or programs that are not within the priorities of government responsibilities, which are 1) improving drainage and flooding 2) improving roads and infrastructure 3) providing police and fire protection.
