Economic development and common sense politics are the primary issues I hear from our townspeople. They are my top priority for the next four years. I want our business owners to be free to succeed in Hastings, and I want Hastings to continue to attract creative new businesses. I see my role on city council is to keep a firm hand on the wheel to steer clear of policies and decisions that would make it harder to be successful in Hastings, for ourselves and our children.
