Please Support my Re-election this November!

WD1As your city commissioner, I have been at the forefront of several innovations in public engagement, notably the live-streaming of city commission meetings and the launch of the “MyRome app” which allows Romans to submit work requests conveniently via their smart phones.  I also encouraged citizens to oppose the development on Rome’s “central park” and have been a strong advocate for neighborhood associations and civic involvement in redevelopment plans.

As a first-time candidate in 2013, I was blessed to have broad-based community support and utilized sophisticated campaign tools on my path to winning one of the three Ward 2 posts.  I ran for this position because I felt that Rome needed new energy to keep our community moving forward, and I believed I was the kind of leader who could spark change.

One of my key goals in running for local office was to increase citizens’ access to information regarding city matters.  In pursuit of that goal, I have routinely posted notices about commission and committee meetings via social media, shared video links of commission meetings and electronic versions of critical documents, and pushed for additional upgrades of the city’s website and public information office, while making myself available for media interviews to keep the public informed.

If re-elected, I intend to keep asking tough questions, making sure the community understands the actions taken by city leaders, and being responsive to citizens’ questions, concerns and ideas.  Along with reforming Rome’s alcohol ordinances, I want to work with local entrepreneurs, business people, civic leaders and the arts community to make the River District a lively and successful addition to downtown Rome.

We have more work to do to make Rome more business-friendly, to ensure our services are user-friendly, and to recruit career-caliber jobs that will keep our young people in Rome after college.  I want to hear from you and your neighbors, so please follow me on , and share your ideas and opinions.  Would love for you to utilize my new survey tool to let me know how you feel about specific issues:

Thank you for your interest in the city election and helping to build a vibrant community.  If you share my vision for a bold future for Rome, please give me your support and your vote in November 7th election!
