The future of our city as a special place to work, play, raise a family or enjoy retirement in safety and comfort depends on making smart, fiscally responsible decisions today. So many opportunities lie ahead for a community like ours with a strong school system, excellent medical care options, a wide range of recreational opportunities, and a healthy and growing family wage employment base. As a successful Arlington business owner and mother of three, I am particularly aware of the impact that City Council decisions will have on the long term sustainability and economic vitality of Arlington. Our best interests as a community are served with open, transparent local government and genuine, consistent public participation in the decisions that affect all of us.
I am currently serving on the City of Arlington’s sign code and lodging tax committees to familiarize myself with how our City works. I have been involved with PTA to help make sure that my children have the best possible educational opportunities; I was on the board of the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce to help make sure that our local business environment remains healthy and that we can take full advantage of the growth opportunities ahead. I will apply the same commitment, passion and integrity to the decisions our Council will be making along the path of growth, sustainability, and economic opportunity.
