Why are you seeking elected office? I want to continue to offer the citizens of Yellow Springs a visible and active mayor who enjoys the job.

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? 1. Continued effective operation of the village’s Mayor’s Court 2. Support the Village Values as developed by our legislative council 3. Involvement with the village Climate Action & Sustainability Plan.
What specific plans do you have to address those top priorities? 1. Ongoing training through the Ohio Municipal League and use of local restorative practices 2. Support and attend activities which further our stated Village Values honoring inclusion, diversity and issues of social justice 3. Join the local Native Habitat subcommittee and share my work with the National Wildlife Foundation’s Mayor’s Monarch Pledge.
Anything else? I continue to hold Monday-Wednesday-Friday office hours, 1-5 p.m. at the John Bryan Center.
