What do you love most about Dayton?
The history of the town truly comes to life thru Dayton's town square, historic buildings and spaces. What I love most about Dayton is its residents. Having lived and traveled all across this great country, I have seen many places and met many people over the years, but Dayton has always been the most welcoming of all.

Do you have a particular area or passion regarding your work on the City Council?
I am passionate about seeing Dayton's downtown be successful. Whether it is redevelopment of existing spaces, new development of vacant lots, or welcoming new businesses to old spaces, I will strive to keep Dayton's charm.

Who inspires you to be better?
Both of my parents taught me by living their lives with passion and always learning that service above self is the most noble cause. I live my life to serve the public and to find those moments of connecting with those around me at personal level.

Last Sunday, I road the Monster Cookie bike ride from the state capital to Champoeg State Park. Every day is a new day for me.

If you were given 10 million dollars to spend on Dayton, how would you spend it?
With $10 million dollars, I would rebuild the pedestrian bridge over the river and upgrade Dayton's Landing "riverfront" park. We have such an amazing asset that could be more accessible for all of us.
