I stand for collaboration and creative solutions that go beyond progressive and conservative labels. I will champion thoughtful decisions as I have for five years on Salem’s budget committee—by listening, asking tough questions, and making decisions with Salem’s families and future in mind.
Yes! I want to help Jan bring people together to solve Salem's issues.
