Why did you run for office?

I was fortunate enough to grow up in Clayton and was raised on my great grandfather’s farm. I have watched Clayton change and grow throughout the years. I am now raising my family here I want to help shape the future of our town. 

We must maintain a safe community, with that small-town charm and feel. At the same time, we must offer high-quality schools and provide excellent amenities to residents, while welcoming diverse businesses and thoughtful development.
