"I am running for mayor for all the hard-working women and men in this city - whether they are retired, working and raising a family, or just starting out. I will work with everyone: the city council, the school board, all our municipal departments... but most importantly I will work with you. I know we need to communicate better. You have been heard loud and clear. If elected, I will be a much more accessible mayor. I will host office hours and host regular public meetings  - all year, not just during election season. I will visit neighborhoods and listen to all of you. This is our city and we will work together to make it better."
