Big News: Run for District 12 Alder

September 26, 2022 9:11 PM

Dear friends and neighbors, 

I want to share bittersweet news with you all. After serving two terms and almost 4 years on the Common Council, I have decided not to run next term (April 2023 - 2025). It is my pleasure and my honor to work with my constituents, my colleagues and the city staff. 

I love the work and the accomplishments we are achieving together. The people of the district are diverse and have unique perspectives on a variety of issues. I have learned so much from all of you. 

The journey as council president during the pandemic was tough, no doubt. But, it was greatly rewarding, as have been all my years on the council. 

I am making this early announcement because I want to give time to the residents of the district to begin thinking about and/or planning to run for the seat. I would be very happy to meet with any of you and guide you in the process, as well as discuss the challenges our district is facing. 

The deadline to collect signatures and file nomination papers is January 5th, 2023. However, I encourage people to complete the process sooner than later.
