As a candidate for Marietta City Council president, I bring a serious approach to this position. I believe in order to effectively be the president of council, one must work up to that position. City history has demonstrated our former council presidents have agreed and always had experience on council first before attempting to move into the president's chair. I have spent the last eight years working for the city and its citizens in multiple capacities. I also have a 16-year business background that will compliment my experience I have gained on council. I am also a lifelong resident of Marietta.
