Hello neighbor,

I'm running for City Council for Ward 4 and wanted to reach out again to ask for your vote on February 14th. One of the central goals of my campaign has been to meet and connect with as many community members as possible. I started walking neighborhoods in late December, knocking on doors to hear directly from you about issues that are important in our community. As a result of those efforts, neighbors have shared the following needs for our city: a recycling program, more retail development, more sit down restaurant options, and better safety and signage for our busiest streets in the district. Your vote would allow me to be your representative at the city to make sure your voice, concerns, ideas, and solutions are heard.

For those of you I have not been able to connect with yet, here is a little more information about me. My husband Clint and I have been married for 10 years and we have one daughter, Paisley. I hold two master's degrees in educational leadership and counseling, both from Northeastern State University. Additionally, I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and sociology from Rogers State University. I have worked in the field of human services for the last 11 years providing services and advocating for those within the social service community. I am a clinical supervisor at a foster care agency and hold two professional licenses in the state of Oklahoma. I am inspired by my work in helping others build on successes, providing solution focused resolutions, inspiring others to reach their goals, and advocating for those within the social service community.

I am encouraged by the people I serve, and want to continue to make a difference in the lives of others and my community. I have enjoyed visiting with those who live in Ward 4, and I look forward to working with you to ensure the needs of the community are met. If elected, I will continue to be a representative of the ward regarding the issues that are important to you. If I missed meeting with you in your neighborhood, please call or message me. I would love to hear from you and would be honored to have your vote on Tuesday, February 14th.
