Thank you for visiting this website and for your interest in the future of Dunedin!

Besides being a mom, I can honestly say that serving as your Mayor has been the most rewarding job I have ever had and I want to personally thank you for allowing me to be your representative.

 

 

 

See where I stand and get straight talk on the issues that impact Dunedin most:   

 

We want to protect Dunedin’s charm.  Compare the record.  I consistently apply scrutiny to ensure that new development complement our village vibe.

We want free parking. I was the lone vote to keep parking free in downtown Dunedin. I was not willing to change our delightful ambiance, hurt businesses and spend tens of thousands of dollars.

 We want prudent decisions about taxes and spending. Our General Fund expenses have only increased an average of 1% per year and today’s millage rate is 7 % less than when first elected.

We want to preserve our Greenspace. With your support, I led the charge to preserve Hammock Park. Now we are pushing forward with the same vigor to save Douglas/Hackworth property.

We want a diverse resident base. Keeping taxes low is not enough to ensure housing options for first-time buyers, seniors, and others. I have pushed the city to commit to our own resources and create incentives.

We want accessible and transparent government. I fought an effort to limit citizen input. If meetings go long, it’s because our job is to listen to YOU. I am well known to return every call, answer every email and respond to citizens on social media.

There are many reasons to love Dunedin. We’ve accomplished great things together and Dunedin is nationally recognized as a wonderful place to live. I am honored to have been a part of that and I am running for my final term as your representative. I humbly ask for your vote.
