My Focus for Decatur
I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Decatur City Commissioner, District 2, Post B. I have been a resident of the City of Decatur for 16 years and have been dedicated to this community, with all of the characteristics that make it extraordinary. When I moved to Decatur, I found it to be diverse and welcoming, unique and thriving, safe and fun. It was for these reasons that I decided to raise my family here.
Over the years, I have observed Decatur’s many changes- some positive, some disappointing and some downright confusing. As Commissioner, I will represent the voice of the resident who wants to continue to see Decatur maintain all of its charm, warmth and diversity by implementing common sense growth planning, increasing the availability of affordable housing and maintaining safe routes for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers in the community.
I bring to the City Commission my unique perspective. I am a mom of a teenager, a tween and a toddler.
I commute to work using MARTA. I have been an active volunteer at College Heights, Oakhurst, F.Ave and Renfroe. By profession, I am a Third Party Risk Manager for a large financial institution. I have years of experience with identifying and managing risks, reviewing contracts and invoices, analyzing spend and implementing cost-saving initiatives. As Commissioner, I will couple this experience with my love of the community and desire to help Decatur remain a thriving, welcoming and award-winning city.
I look forward to continuing discussions with my neighbors about which issues are most important in District 2 and what positive actions we can take to make improvements where needed. Most importantly, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve.
