Capitalize on Coralville's strengths

I am seeking re-election for a second term to the Coralville City Council because I’m passionate about continuing to direct our city government to be the best it can be.

I feel a responsibility to give back to a community that has invested so much in our family over the years. I want to see seniors, young families, recent graduates and all those in between continue to enjoy services they have grown to expect, as well as find economic security in sustainable projects and growth.

As a resident of Coralville since 1984, I am committed to capitalizing on Coralville’s strengths, advancing current goals and generating a positive impact on the lives of Coralville residents.

My experience in serving Coralville includes: part-time administrative employee for Coralville (1998-2007), Coralville Comprehensive Community Plan Steering Committee (2013), Coralville Hospitality Committee (2014 to present), Parks & Recreation Commission member and council representative (2009 to present), East Central Iowa Council of Governments board of directors (2014, 2017), 2017 Citizen’s Police Academy Graduate, 2017 Certified Elected Municipal Official.

Leadership and decision making for me, as a council member, means consistently attending meetings and volunteering for activities in all areas of the community. This keeps me in touch with people, current issues, and I make an effort to respond to individuals who contact me with concerns.

I enjoy every part of being a Coralville City Council member and would like to use the knowledge and experience I have gleaned to serve four more years. Thank you!
