Moving Cedar Falls Forward

Cedar Falls is a great place to live, and keeping it great requires initiative, fresh thinking, and a willingness to be bold. I ran for city council in 2009 promising those attributes and since that time, have absorbed countless experiences that have honed my perspective, leadership style, and effectiveness.  I'm eager to represent the citizens of Cedar Falls and to dutifully guide our city's future over the next four years.

Below you will see my most recent Council Connection and general interest blog posts over the years:

The vision will embrace the river's natural beauty. It will enhance aquatic life, provide recreation and leisure opportunities remaking and renewing the river as the defining feature of Cedar Falls. The stars have aligned to bring people and resources together to translate vision into reality. To support the vision, Single Speed Brewery unveiled its Whitewater Black Beer to support the Prairie Rapids project. $1.00 of each pint sale will go to the Prairie Rapids project, a fund held by the Cedar Falls Community Foundation dedicated to river enhancements.
