Choice, voice, change. These things are never easy! While campaigning for Hinesville City Council District 3, my slogan was "Your Choice, My Voice." The slogan was a promise to use my voice to represent the city and district’s desire for change, if chosen.

The citizens of District 3 elected me and I would be remiss if I did not use my voice to represent them in the most genuine and sincere way to assist with the vital and constructive changes being made not only at city hall but throughout the city of Hinesville.

As a council member I am responsible for setting policy and it is my desire to ensure that every citizen is treated fairly and equally when dealing with any authority of the city. The city has experienced great leadership over the years and that’s evident by the growth; however, change is inevitable and never ending and must continue if our aspiration as a community is to continue progressing and living up to the standards that have been set by the giants before this administration.

I also realize that the citizens have questions about some of the decisions that are being made and want to be included in and have questions about the whys. As a member of the council I am unable to disclose anything that happens in executive session because of confidentiality. However, I can say that all decisions that are being made are in the best interest of the city and District 3 to continue making Hinesville a great place for growing, living, and doing business.

As a council member I will contribute to Hinesville’s greatness by ensuring that everyone is held to the same standard and required to abide by the policies that are set in place.

I would encourage every citizen of Hinesville to attend the council meetings on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at 3 p.m. so that you are well informed about decisions being made in the various districts and so that your concerns can be heard.

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
