Tell us why you would like to serve in a leadership position at the League. In particular, specify goals you would like to accomplish as an officer or board member and indicate how, if attained, they will help to achieve Vision 2030 – the League’s future vision of how cities and towns will operate in 2030.

First, I would like to say that I wish I had become involved in the League earlier in my elected leadership life. The relationships I have developed with fellow board members and the League staff have greatly advanced my professional knowledge and skills as well as my personal growth as an elected leader.

The activities of the League are essential in assisting cities and towns across the state, particularly in the areas of operational support, education and legislative engagement. If reelected to a board position I hope to continue to help in the League’s policy development, legislative activities and to make the most of our opportunity in how we develop/invest in our Raleigh property for the long-term sustainability and growth of the organization.

Quite simply, the League helps make cities and towns stronger. I very much wish to continue to support this mission.
