My Eau Claire origin story started at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The true value of my time in college was how I served my community with the education that I received there. Through my civic engagement, I have fallen in love with Eau Claire and want to continue to build it into a community other people fall in love with, too.

To me, investing in a community as an engaged citizen means leading change with a set of values. Over the years, as I’ve invested in our community, I’ve led with a fundamental value that all of our neighbors deserve an Eau Claire that works for everyone. They deserve a safe and affordable place to live. They deserve fair, family-supporting wages. They deserve clean water to drink and to play in. They deserve an equal chance to participate in our democracy.

I’ve fought for these values for 3 years on the Eau Claire City Council and am asking for another 3 years to keep the fight going. We’ve made so much progress but we’ll need to fight just as hard for lasting change. I need your help to keep this good work going. 

Thank you for donating to support my campaign and our shared values.
