4th Ward Alderman
Although I’m new to public government, I’m not new to taking leadership roles. Beginning in high school as a peer mediator trained through Common Ground, through college as business manager of Student Union Programming, I’ve prepared myself to represent my community and use my life experiences for the improvement of the City of Hudson.
