In the coming weeks, the city of Rocksprings will once again vote for the election of a mayor. And as a native and citizen of Rocksprings, I want what is best for this city and see us grow and prosper. I have spent most of my life in this city. My heart and desire has always been to serve my community and like many people I believe that Rocksprings has an untapped potential waiting to erupt. And I believe that with dedication on my behalf and with the help of the community, we can mobilize this potential. I have enjoyed serving in the Parent Teacher Organization, Sports Booster, Chamber of Commerce and now as President of the Chamber of Commerce. During that time, we have made many positive changes and I feel I have offered positive contributions to our community. I have decided to run for mayor because I believe and feel that we need to renew and redefine our vision and direction for this great city. We need to make the city of Rocksprings unite and become superior and stronger. A city divided against itself will not prevail. It is time for our city to begin to excel together and amongst other cities in our region. Although I am content with many of the steps we have taken, in many ways, I feel this city can expand and improve. It is time to face and focus on some of the important issues and challenges affecting this city today and united we can achieve this. I ask for your support and trust in my undertaking. It’s time to take action and get results.
