After my retirement, I found that I don’t miss police work at all, but I do still feel a passion for serving this community. I have never run for anything before. I’m not a politician, and have no desire to become one. I’m not angry about anything or carrying a banner for any particular issue. My agenda as a member of the City Council will be simple; to carefully consider each issue as it comes before the council, to seek input from the community, and to make the best decision I can for the future of the city based on the facts before me. I am not seeking this seat with any goal other than to serve the City of Eau Claire the best I know how, and to treat our citizens, and our council proceedings with the respect they deserve.
