After 25 years in Oak Ridge, I am still a "newcomer" but I think I have demonstrated some loyalty to our beautiful small city. Looking back at the town's history keeps me proud. Looking forward to new horizons keeps me in touch with our continuing responsibility to ourselves and our fellow citizens.
What I would like to encourage on city council:
1. A focus on the strengths of Oak Ridge.
2. Specific changes to help small business thrive.
3. Support for and improvements to heritage buildings, both residential and commercial.
4. An increase in participation of the residents of all areas of the city.
