WHY I WANT TO SERVE
Royal Oak has been my home for the past decade and there is nowhere else I’d rather live.
I love Royal Oak’s close-knit neighborhoods and vibrant downtown. Royal Oak is such a desirable place to live, work, and play because we have a long history of dedicated citizens, public servants, and business owners. We have young families raising their children and we have families who have been living here for generations. The people of this city have made lasting connections as we share schools, churches, parks, and sidewalks. In other words, Royal Oak has deep roots. And with deep roots comes stability, even in the face of change. Royal Oak is experiencing much growth right now. It’s an exciting time for the city, but with growth comes challenges. It is essential that the needs of Royal Oak’s residents are balanced with the needs of its businesses and municipal entities. As your City Commissioner, I will work every day to maintain Royal Oak’s small-town familariarty while at the same time helping the city to realize its world-class potential.
