As your Mayor, I am deeply honored to serve this wonderful community. The role of a mayor is not just a title; it is a profound responsibility and a unique opportunity to positively impact the lives of our residents. I am committed to addressing critical issues that are close to our hearts, such as public safety and community health.
I will actively listen, work tirelessly for your benefit, and be a strong and effective advocate when needed. I am dedicated to being transparent, accountable, and constantly focused on the diverse needs, interests, and aspirations of our entire community.
Summit is more than just a place on the map; it is our home, a place we love and cherish. It fills me with pride to call myself a Hilltopper, and I am enthusiastic about making it an even better place for all of us.
Together, we have the power to bring about meaningful change and to accomplish great things. I look forward to collaborating with each and every one of you as we embark on this journey to enhance our community and make Summit a city that continues to thrive and inspire.
