WHY RUNNNG: I am running because Rock Island, and especially the 5th Ward where I grew up, is home, and I want to see that it has strong representation. Although I am young, I have the background and knowledge to be an effective alderman while bringing a fresh, new perspective to the City Council
KEY ISSUE: The city needs young Rock Island natives to be leaders in the community and take on the responsibility of ensuring Rock Island's future is as bright as its past. I want to provide the 5th Ward and the whole city with a representative who listens and proactively responds to issues of the greatest concern of its residents.
