I’m so thrilled to introduce the first edition of our campaign updates! With less than six weeks to go, it’s a great time to get involved with the campaign. This week, I’m sharing why I’m running, the people and organizations that have supported my run, and how YOU can help us in our final push to win this election.
Upper Arlington is my community of choice, and my husband and I are proud to have raised our two children here. They are currently attending college, but I want to stay here so I can give back to the community that has been such a wonderful place to raise our family.
I’m running because Central Ohio is the fastest-growing part of the state. We are projected to grow by one million in the next twenty-five years. It took us 210 years to get to two million residents, and the rapid growth that is coming is going to impact and change every suburb in Central Ohio. As Central Ohio grows, I want to ensure that Upper Arlington continues to rise and thrive.
I believe I’m uniquely qualified to ensure this happens. I have worked in the field of human-centered research and design for over two decades. My role has given me unique skills in the area of strategic planning and co-creating better solutions that I believe will be a great addition to the council as we plan for the future.
I am honored to enjoy the support of House Minority Leader Allison Russo (Ohio House District 7) and Senator Bill DeMora (Ohio Senate District 25) in my bid for City Council.
For my unwavering support of women in all positions of leadership – including local elected offices.
For my commitment to protecting our green spaces and including considerations for climate resiliency and sustainability into our planning process.
For my two-decades-long involvement in progressive efforts in Central Ohio, as well as my vision for the future and next generation of Upper Arlington.
For my steadfast work supporting other candidates who embody innovative, thoughtful platforms that move us forward together.
For my commitment to doing the hard work necessary to get elected, my detailed campaign plan, and, most importantly, my desire to balance progress and preservation so Upper Arlington can evolve to meet the needs of the next generation while preserving the unique qualities of our city that keep families here over generations.
One of the most surprising things I have learned is how expensive it is to run a modest campaign. Any amount you can contribute now will help me secure funds to fully execute my campaign plan.
From going door-to-door to working behind the scenes writing postcards, to placing a sign in your yard, there are many ways you can volunteer.
Sign up to volunteer
With most candidate forums behind me, this week is all about reaching voters in person or through the mail.
On Tuesday, volunteers and I will be writing postcards to send to voters. If you want to help out, select “other” on the volunteer opportunities form on the Get Involved page on my website and I’ll reach out to you.
Wednesday evening you can meet me at Grater’s Ice Cream to grab a cone on me and ask me anything you’d like about my campaign or my platform.
The rest of the week I’ll be out and about knocking on doors. I hope to see you out on the trail!
