Welcome

 I am dedicated, persistent; always in consistent pursuit of goals in a calm and methodical manner even when setbacks occur, as well as a focused listener, easygoing and uncritical in getting along with others. I believe I have represented the residents of ward 6 well in the last 4 years and look forward to continuing.
