Major campaign issue: “I have always tried my best as a council member to keep Edgerton great as a whole and to continue to keep it a fun, exciting place to live in and shop in, and to keep it as safe as possible. That includes well-thought-out neighborhood planning for new subdivisions, maintaining existing hometown businesses and encouraging new businesses to come to the city, increasing the number of high-paying jobs, expanding parks and being transparent about what is happening at City Hall. Let’s preserve what’s best about Edgerton and welcome progress that benefits the residents.”
