I’m running for Council because when I moved to Lexington over a decade ago, I felt a sense of belonging. I felt warmth, acceptance and love. Lexington is my home, the Third District is my heart and I am dedicated and motivated to continue this legacy of inclusivity. In the Urban County Council, I will represent all residents of the Third District and advocate for sustainable, affordable, and equitable policies, adapting new technology, and utilizing my legal background and experience in local government.I believe everyone - regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, age, or ability - can live and thrive in Lexington. I will consider the needs of all our residents when examining new developments in housing, education, employment, and public safety.
I am running to represent the Third District because I am called to serve this community through listening, planning, and action.
I am the most qualified candidate to represent the Third District.
I'm a practicing healthcare attorney, but my first job was working for the Kentucky League of Cities to help Kentucky cities make effective municipal laws.
I recently completed a four-year term on the Lexington-Fayette Human Rights Commission, so I understand the role of local government in safeguarding our most fundamental rights.
I currently serve on the Urban County Government's Rural Land Management Board, so I understand how local government works—a number of our recommendations have recently been adopted by the Council.
I am also deeply involved in our community. I currently serve on the boards of the Kentucky Civil Justice Commission, Central Baptist Foundation, Step by Step, the Fayette County Bar Association, the Young Lawyers Division of the Kentucky Bar Association, and the Junior League of Lexington's Holly Day Market. I'm also the President of the Bell Court Neighborhood Association.
