Why are you running for mayor?

I am running for the families and individuals trying to make it all work in Jackson. I am running so that we can raise our kids in a place that is community first, where we work together to solve our problems and support each other through the easy and the hard. I am running to represent a voice that would otherwise not be at the table. After two terms on the council and serving under three mayors, I have the experience to serve as mayor.
