This is the area will you will find my stance on issues. Please send me a message if you have questions or comments about any of the issues I publish, or if you would like to heat about issues you do not see.

Crime and Safety

In order for a community to thrive it must be a safe and healthy place to live.

Garbage Collection

I believe we, as citizens, have the right to hire our own trash collection service.   I support St Paul CARTless and St. Paul Trash Lawsuit.

Fiscal Responsibility

Taxes are used to service the communities in which we live. We must be fiscally responsible and provide services that make sense for all of us in a manner that is minimum and gives the maximum essential needs.


The Environment

We must take notice of the issues that involve climate change and clean energy.

Affordable Housing

Affordable housing are buzz words that tend to get tossed around without any explanation so I thought I would share with you what that means plain and simple, "Affordable" housing is housing that does not exceed 30% of the area median income.

Second Amendment Rights

I believe any law abiding citizen who has passed a background check should have the right to have a gun for the protection of themselves, their home and their family, and for hunting purposes.

Recreation Centers

Our recreation centers must provide quality programming for our kids.

School Funding

Our kids, teachers, and families deserve our support. Join me in the March for educational funding this Saturday at 11:00 am. We will march to the state capital.

Small Business

We need to encourage small business ownership in our neighborhoods So that people don't have to travel long distances for goods and services. Having a wide variety of businesses brings more to our neighborhoods. This is a way to support both businesses and neighbors. The role of city council should be to promote new businesses and follow up with them to ensure their needs are being met so they can continue their work. We must also inform business owners and potential business owners about available fund. Support for small businesses is crucial.

Work Force/ Work Agencies

Not everyone is close to a Work Force Centers or Job Agencies. Our neighborhoods in Ward 5 each hold more residents than some towns across our state. I would like to work on bringing Work Force Centers and/or Job Agency's to our neighborhoods so that residents have a place to start and look for jobs more easily. For some, transportation can be an issue or Agencies aren't in convenient area's when taking public transportation. This leaves residents at a disadvantage. Having resources within reach can be all that some people need. 

Latest on the trash issue

This just in .... The TRASH VERDICT IS IN! :D
Judge Castro has ruled in favor of the Plaintiff's. The city is required to:
1) Suspend the ordinance as of June 30th (you can use whatever hauler you want)
2) The ordinance will be on the ballot for a vote in the General election of November 5th - or SOONER if the city wishes.
