Here Is Where We Need To Be

April 23, 2018

Today during the Sioux Falls Communities of Color Coalition Mayoral Panel, as the only candidate to attend, I was asked by the moderators why I was there.

It’s a simple answer.

Because I care.

I know the conversations we have will be tough. The solutions we need will require hard work. And we won’t always agree. But a good mayor and the type of leader our city deserves is one that isn’t afraid of tough questions and hard work.

We have lead our companies, our advocacy for children and families and our campaign with the fundamental principle that progress isn’t easy, but if our tomorrow is to be better than today, then it is necessary. And that’s how I will lead our city.

Because I care.
