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.
