Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”

– Abraham Lincoln 

I believe what Abraham Lincoln said in this quote. As your elected representative the one place where I will never waver is on Character. I always have and always will approach every decision with character, integrity, and discernment. 

I’m very proud of what I’ve accomplished in my two terms serving as your elected representative on City Council.

Through this process, working together, we will continue to do amazing things for our community. Vote Cowboy.
