Thank you for coming to my website. As you may very well know, Gardner is a city that stands at a crossroads. With the ongoing development of BNSF Railway's intermodal logistics hub, our community will be changed forever. Although I recognize that the hub was opposed by a substantial portion of the community, I also see the possible benefits that the intermodal can provide to Gardner - if the people of this city are listened to.

I am running for City Council because I believe that we need someone who will put the concerns of our citizens first - before large developers, special interests, and those looking for a handout at taxpayers' expense.  I am a steadfast defender of personal property rights and will fight the unjust use of eminent domain - not only with regard to this project, but any project that seeks to penalize homeowners and farmers to benefit private interests. Finally, I want to identify and implement ways for us to be more efficient and effective as a city government with the money we have been entrusted by our citizens. We are stewards of the community's resources first and foremost, and we should never forget that we serve the people of the community, not the other way around.

I invite you to join our cause today and work with me to build a bright future for Gardner!
