Harrisburg has become my adopted hometown. I have lived here for 14 years and I look forward to many more years. I love the sense of community here. The beauty of the neighborhoods is never lost on me as I travel around town. Harrisburg has a rich history and I believe that despite the current obstacles, it has a bright future.

I recognize that Harrisburg is truly a diverse community and I maintain committed to representing the city as a whole. I value the dimensions of diversity that run deep within this city, and I believe that inclusion is the key to ensuring the long term viability and inclusive nature of the community. I want the future of this city to be bright and I want it to be a community where all are welcome to come and build a better future for themselves and their families.

I look forward to your support in my re-election in May of 2017 and I welcome you to join me on this journey.
