Moving Gahanna Forward
I am running for Mayor to provide the strong leadership our city needs - focused on moving Gahanna forward, not backward.
I grew up in Gahanna, and I love our community. That's why I've worked so hard to ensure that the next generation has the same incredible opportunities that I had, first as a School Board member, then on City Council, and now as your candidate for Mayor.
Gahanna is a model community, nestled in a prime location among major transportation hubs, tourist attractions, and natural beauty. Not only should we be an exporter of great ideas, but an importer of talented, hard-working, community-oriented residents, employees, and businesses.
For too long the city has been reactive, not taking the proactive steps necessary to prepare Gahanna for long-term success. It's not enough to plan for the next four years; we need to plan for the next thirty-four years. I am not afraid to make the tough decisions necessary to balance our wants and our needs, to balance our safety and our freedom, and to balance our budget for the long run.
My vision for our great city establishes clear goals for us to achieve, together. No longer will we struggle to piece together our city-wide jigsaw puzzle without having a picture of what we're trying to do. We will be focused, efficient, and effective, delivering the services citizens expect, like excellent snow removal, and the amenities residents desire, like enjoyable parks and pools.
I am always amazed at how wonderful our community is, and I am incredibly excited about how exceptional we can be.
I hope you'll join our movement for new leadership so that together we can continue moving Gahanna forward.
