Leadership does not rest, nor does it retire.

I’ve been fortunate to spend my life and career in public service. I have served on several nonprofit boards and have been honored to receive recognition and awards for leadership, business and volunteer service. Now, after four decades in service to our community, I humbly ask for your support as I work to become the next mayor of the City of Cedar Rapids.

As mayor, I pledge to

  • collaborate with community and business leaders, citizen groups and neighborhood associations toward innovative and quality opportunities and solutions for Cedar Rapidians;
  • support our labor forces, the lifeblood of the Cedar Rapids community, who raise their families here and spend money in our local economy;
  • work with all neighborhoods to increase social and economic resources to maintain a safe, equitable and trusting environment; and,
  • increase the speed of progress on flood protection and river conservation efforts to keep both sides of the river safe from future floods.

My wife Linda and I have been lucky to call Cedar Rapids home for our entire adult lives and were proud to raise our daughters here. I hope, with your support, I can provide the Leadership for the Future that our great city needs as our next mayor.
