Thank you for support everyone! According to the unofficial count, I won the election last night with your support. I'm looking forward to implementing my campaign platform over the next four years, and I'll update this page when the official counts are in. Thank you!
I was elected in 2008 on a platform for sustainability. I won that election because I worked hard to develop specific plans for addressing challenges Fayetteville was facing. Now it is 2012, and I am asking for your support once more.
The challenges facing Fayetteville today are different. As Fayetteville has evolved, our ambitions and obstacles have grown as well. As in 2008, I passionately believe that Fayetteville can rise to the occasion, and I want to share with you my plans for propelling Fayetteville into the future.
Our region is growing, and our neighboring communities have issued a challenge to Fayetteville. I believe we are still the best community in Northwest Arkansas, but we need a strategy to keep it that way. I have a vision for how to do that. The first step is doing more of what we already do best. More of our neighborhoods can be walkable and we can build civic space and green space downtown. We can build bikeways to connect our neighborhoods to the trails and to one another, so that casual cyclists have clear routes to travel by bike. We can establish a funding stream to give grants to festivals and the arts, and we can add new tools to our economic development strategy. If we put each of these things together, Fayetteville will remain the premiere community in Northwest Arkansas for another generation.
I know this is a vision that many Ward 2 voters share. This is what defines my work and defines each plank in my campaign platform. However, I know mere vision and motivation is never enough, and that's why I am proposing specific plans to make Fayetteville even better than it already is. I invite you to send me your suggestions, too.
As you learn more about my ideas for securing Fayetteville's first place status in Northwest Arkansas, it is my sincere hope that I earn your vote.
