Growing up, I learned about teamwork, hard work and preparation in sports.  Success is greatest when every member of the team does their absolute best.  Hard work and preparation are also required. The work on the City Council will be similar in that it takes a lot of hard work and preparation by many people working as a team to achieve their goals.

 I would appreciate your vote for Bastrop City Council, Place 4 on May 1st, 2021.  I want to represent the citizens and make a positive impact on Bastrop’s future. Together, we can make growth positive for businesses and citizens and continue to maintain Bastrop’s reputation as a great place to work and raise families.
