Thank you for successfully electing me to Roseville City Council in the November 2016 election!
There were six candidates running for three seats (one incumbent and two open seats). The incumbent, Bonnie Gore, received the highest votes. Our campaign team was very excited to receive the second highest votes! John Allard rounded out the three newly-elected council members. We’ll join Mayor Susan Rohan and Tim Herman as the five of us serve as the Roseville City Council.
We are so proud to win second place in this election because although we knew we would win, the establishment didn’t think we could. It is okay that they didn’t initially support the campaign because it allowed us to rely on relationships with the community, our biggest advantage. We didn’t raise a large amount of money so we had to rely on a massive ground campaign. It took an entire year and it was truly the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Because it was so difficult, being selected by the community to represent them is an even bigger honor. THANK YOU so much for your vote, your financial contributions, your willingness to walk neighborhoods and hold house parties to introduce me to your friends. I was elected because of YOU and I now owe you my best service.
I invite you to explore this site and get to know a little bit about me personally, professionally and civically. You’ll learn about my business background, community involvement, and vision for our great City – and hopefully walk away knowing I’m qualified to help.
But I’d also like to use this platform to get to know you! I want to know what you love about Roseville and what you think needs work. Sometimes, elected folks at all levels forget that part of leading is listening. So if you’ve got something to share, please reach out.
I look forward to hearing from you!
