In my 30+ years of living in Chandler, there has not been a day that my family and I have not felt safe and protected where I have lived and worked. Our city is known for having communities where families and individuals can live, work, worship, play and shop right in their own neighborhoods. This is a blessing and a great compliment to our City leaders, and especially to our Chandler Police Department. The heart and hard work they put into their jobs are worth noting. Because of my personal experience, it is my goal to see that all citizens live in enriched neighborhoods – neighborhoods that are safe, have good schools, strong businesses, and positive entertainment venues. As a member of Chandler City Council, I will listen to citizen ideas and address concerns. I will work with the Chandler Police Department to create more dialogue with communities, and I will advocate for increased resources for existing programs. I will work hard every day to ensure that Chandler continues to be a place where families and individuals will want to continue living and working for years to come.
