Thank you for learning about us, your candidates. Free elections are among the reasons that I served in the military during times of crisis and calm.

This election isn't about right versus left, it is about right versus wrong. As a major and growing mid-sized American city, Spokane is facing the biggest city problems. We must address these with our hometown values. Our current city council majority has gone the wrong direction by following the Seattle council's liberal lead. I will increase our police, our housing inventory, and help the small business owners who are the backbone of our economy.
