I am honored to have been chosen by my fellow councillors to serve as Vice Mayor during the 2018-19 term. The only non-incumbent elected as one of the 9 at-large city councillors in November 2015, I was re-elected to a second term in 2017, finishing 4th in a competitive field of 26 candidates all vying for one of the 9 at-large seats.
In the 2016-17 term I served on the following committees and look forward to continuing this work in the 2018-19 term:
- Health & Environment Committee (chair)
- Economic Development & University Relations (chair)
- Ordinance Committee
- Finance Committee
