My family and I have called Cypress our home for almost 10 years. I have over 20 years of experience as an IT Manager successfully leading teams, working with budgets, and managing large-scale projects. I am actively involved in the community and serve on the Cypress Community Festival Committee and the Cypress Youth Baseball Board, and I coach my son’s youth baseball team.
I’m running for city council because I want to be an independent voice on the council that represents the interests of Cypress residents. I want to use my experience to find effective solutions to the issues our community is facing. Currently, there are growing divisions on the city council and among community members. Many residents feel that important issues are not being addressed by council members because of those divisions. I want to bridge those divides and create allies on issues—and I will do it with civility and mutual respect.
As your City Council Member, I will:
- Work with residents and city officials to ensure the city council is transparent and accountable. I will be open to your ideas, concerns, and conversations; and you will always know how I voted and why I voted how I did.
- Be a responsible steward of taxpayer money by making sure your tax dollars are managed prudently, maintaining balanced budgets, and controlling costs. You can rest assured that I will not support tax increases.
- Foster thoughtful economic growth by supporting small businesses, promoting a business-friendly climate, and weighing economic opportunities against the long-term effects they may have on our community.
- Ensure Cypress remains a good and safe place to live and work by preserving the quality of life in the city, through investments in infrastructure and recreation facilities, and making sure that public-safety needs are being met.
I have real-world experience working with others and leading teams, and I am committed to listening to you, the residents of our community. I think that if we can work together—city officials and residents—on the important issues, we can bring our shared vision for the future of Cypress to a reality.
