As a longtime member of Macomb County and the Warren community, I understand my neighbors. I have gone door to door, listening to the issues that truly matter to my community in Warren. As a City Council Member, I focus on providing a voice to the people I serve, ensuring that they are heard - making Warren a better place to live, work, and play.
WHY I AM RUNNING FOR REELECTION
Delivering for Warren
A Warren neighbor once told me, “Democracy is the art of what is possible.” I believe that our country desperately needs public servants who put the people they represent at the center of their work, whether they are seated at a city council dais or standing in the halls of Congress, whether an R or D follows their name.
I am running for re-election because I believe that democracy is truly the art of advocating for possibilities we wish to be made real - a way for each of us to actively pursue liberty and justice for all. It is a long term goal, but one I am truly passionate about achieving, whether for this generation or the future.
I’ve been saying the Pledge of Allegiance since I was in elementary school. I recite it before every city council meeting and at various civic and public meetings. Now, when the pledge is recited I often hear the ending go something like …”one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.” From some small corner of the room or a row in the middle of the auditorium, a lone voice adds the word “someday” onto the end of the Pledge.
“With liberty and justice for all, some day.”
I have grown to love the phrase because it conveys the reality that many people believe they do not experience full liberties or justice in our country, but maintains a sense of optimism that anything is possible, someday.
