This morning I filled out paperwork officially enrolling as a candidate for Noblesville Mayor in the 2019 Republican primary. Today is the first day of the filing period.
It is an honor to raise my hand and declare my candidacy, I’m looking forward to a stimulating and informative campaign season representing the hardworking people of Noblesville.
I launched my campaign in September based on five core principles:
- A commitment to the people of Noblesville to make their city government more transparent, inclusive and responsive.
- A commitment to maintain our small town values, emphasizing responsible development, a preference for locally owned businesses, and a dense and thriving urban core.
- A recognition that historic preservation isn’t something to be tolerated but something to be celebrated and promoted as an economic and cultural development strategy.
- A sense of urgency in infrastructure development, gaining ground that’s been lost over the past decade.
- A healthy respect for the taxpayer, who is currently paying some of the county’s highest taxes.
The outpouring of support I have received from my fellow citizens since my campaign launch has been truly remarkable, so many people have expressed to me that they are ready for change and I will work tirelessly to usher in that change.
The primary is May 7, 2019.
