Why I’m Running

“I love Hattiesburg. It is the place I call home. It is the place that has educated, protected and nurtured me. It is the place where I have worshipped and grown. Hattiesburg is where I chose to raise my kids in the hopes that they will have all the things that I had as a child: a quality education, a safe city in which to grow, opportunities for recreation and the arts, and a place to be with others who love and encourage them.

There is a new sense of enthusiasm in our city, and I believe our very best days are ahead of us.

At this moment, we need a representative who can effectively continue advancing the cause of our city.  We need someone who knows our community. We need an advocate who will put Hattiesburg first.

I am excited to have an opportunity to give back to the place that has given my family and me so much. I look forward to working alongside you, my friends and neighbors, as we each strive to contribute, in our own individual ways, to this city we love and call home.”
