As Mayor, I will make valuable contributions by opening all lines of communication throughout the city, leading our community’s goals and ideas, and promoting vigilant stewardship over public funds.

I believe in open discussions and transparent outcomes. This open communication mindset will aid discussions and decisions that can then be had with greater visibility and a clearer understanding. I also believe that effective leadership requires great listening skills. Listening allows for the formation of plans to accomplish our community’s goals. To promote stewardship, I will bring a conservative mindset as well as a standardized budget process. Consistency will make the process easier for all to analyze the information, make year to year comparisons, and improve accountability. This will not only help Mayor and staff, but also City Council, city partners, and the public.

It would be my honor to lead Burlington as your new Mayor.
