I am running for Mayor because our city needs a vision for its future, one that we must fight to be part of. I bring years of experience in business, civic involvement and caring to the community. I have a record of working cooperatively with others to move our city forward. My day-to-day focus will be on how we, as a community, work together to move Lynn forward. While this selection for mayor is absolutely critical, another more important selection happens every day- one where people and businesses are selecting with their feet and leaving this city. We need to make living affordable for families and businesses. We need to come up with local, home-grown solutions that use the talents and human capital we have in Lynn. I don’t claim to have all the answers but I know this: It’s going to take involvement by ALL segments of our community. I know I can be the mayor we need at this very moment, because I have the background, education, experience and knowledge needed. Our city has tremendous potential, I’m here to break through the barriers. I will bring the strong leadership our city needs. I hope to earn your vote.
