It is truly an honor to serve as your mayor and lead Sherwood in a new direction.
I am very proud to have served on your city council for 12 years, and I am excited and energized to be your mayor. Since I became a Sherwood resident in 1995, our city's population has grown by an estimated 13,000 people, and our geographical footprint has increased by approximately 10 miles. New challenges have emerged with this growth. As Mayor, I will work diligently to address these growing pains and help our town be a place we are all proud to call home.
By electing me Mayor, our people have demonstrated their commitment to building a better tomorrow for every resident that calls Sherwood home. One of my top priorities as your mayor is to improve our quality of place through beautification projects, park improvements, and recreational opportunities. I plan to implement innovative strategies coupled with practical ideas to solve problems and develop solutions to transform how Sherwood looks and how our residents live. Ultimately, I want Sherwood to become a place where all residents can live their best lives.
Finally, I pledge that my administration will set the highest standards for ethics. Through communication and transparency, we will always put the people of Sherwood first. We will build a bright future for our city on a foundation of trust.
Sherwood, thank you for believing in me because I certainly believe in you! Let's work together to build a better Sherwood.
