“As a member of the city council, I am proud to represent a community that shows the best of what can be done when we work together. During my 16 years of volunteer service for the city of Cedar Park, I have participated in several projects throughout our community. We have been lucky that most of our leaders have worked with each other in spite of their differences, for the greater good of the community. The last couple of years have been particularly challenging with the pandemic. Our community came together for our businesses, our nonprofits and supported each other in a way I'd never seen. It reminded me of what I love most about Cedar Park...THE PEOPLE! I am proud to serve on the Cedar Park City Council because of you... Let's work together to keep Cedar Park Awesome!”

While Cedar Park has grown tremendously in the last few years, we’ve worked hard to keep our city government efficient and effective. We must continue our work of providing the highest level of services to
our residents while ensuring every penny we have is spent responsibly.
Cedar Park is one of the safest cities in Texas and our police and fire departments have been nationally recognized for their excellence. We need to ensure that these departments continue to be supported and given the tools they need to keep our residents safe. We also need to continue building relationships and connections between the departments and the public.
Our Cedar Park economy is strong. The last few years of leadership have brought about some amazing projects that residents can look forward to including the Indigo Ridge Development with the US Tennis Association; the Bell Blvd Re-development; Lakeline Park; 183A access roads; and the future widening of 1431, Anderson Mill, and Parmer roadways. These developments and the ones that will follow under continued leadership will help Cedar Park to stay affordable and full of options for employment and entertainment.
