If elected, I would be the first openly gay person ever to serve on the Pulaski County Quorum Court, and that means a lot to me. It is my passion to ensure that all perspectives, no matter how diverse or varied, are heard. At my core, I want all people to feel like they are valued and they belong.
Frankly, I know what it feels like to be left out. I know what it feels like to be different. With that perspective, I know that I am someone who can lead by example and lead for all of us.
Investing in County Infrastructure
Building and maintaining infrastructure is one of the most important things a Quorum Court does. From our roads and bridges to our sanitation, they have to make sure the county is structurally sound.
To me, water is gold. We don’t spend enough time talking about our Water Reclamation System - but its health and sustainability is vitally important. Our sewer system affects infrastructure in many different ways, mainly our landscape and our soil. As your Justice of the Peace, I will make our county infrastructure a top priority - especially our Water Reclamation System.
Homelessness is an issue that is deeply personal to me. I volunteer weekly at Jericho Way, a local nonprofit that works to provide resources to hundreds of homeless Pulaski County residents. I do this work because it helps people and it improves our communities in so many ways.
As a member of the Quorum Court, I’ll lead the fight to increase resources for our unhoused citizens with innovative solutions, including partnering with local nonprofits who are already doing this vital work.
