What are two things that you want Portsmouth voters to know about you?
- I am running for re-election to City Council because I’m passionate about my home state. You live here for a reason and I want you to stay here. We need to keep Portsmouth a resilient, diverse and interesting community.
- Full-time, I’m a lawyer for a renewable energy company that builds giant wind farms and solar projects out in the Midwest. If I haven’t met you yet, I’d love to hear about what you’re passionate about in our city. Being on City Council has been such a joy because of all the new people I have gotten to meet! (PS: I also like to run.)
One compelling reason that Portsmouth residents should vote on November 7th?
You should vote on November 7th because we have made incredible progress as a Council over the last two years, and we need to keep it going. There are important strategic decisions to be made for our city, and those decisions need to be made in a timely manner with the information available. As a councilor, it is easy for me to see how quickly progress could be stalled, and how some of the projects we have already voted on could be stymied. Please come show your support for building our future Portsmouth, together!
