I would like to thank the citizens of Oak Ridge for allowing me to represent them on city council. I am both honored and excited to go to work for you. I am eager to work with my fellow council members, the city manager and the city staff to make Oak Ridge more affordable for residents and businesses.
I would also like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Ellen Smith for her five years of service on council. She dedicated a tremendous amount of herself to the betterment of Oak Ridge without expectations of praise or notoriety. She is a woman of absolute integrity for whom I have the utmost respect and I wish her nothing but the best.
Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends and other supporters (some of whom I’ve never even met) for their hard work and dedication over these last eight months. I had the most amazing people backing me and am absolutely humbled at how much time and effort you sacrificed to help me win. I thank you all for believing in me and am ready to make you proud!
