“I have decided to make this bold move because I truly believe that I have the leadership skills, ability and ideas to help our beloved city become a better place to live and work. My vision is for Lilburn to become a destination city, not just a place to drive through on your way to somewhere else. I see the potential for fine diverse restaurants, boutique shopping, upscale office parks and small boutique hotels to serve families and business travelers. I have stood at the intersection of Lawrenceville and Indian Trail/Killian Hill in the morning and evening rush hours watching hundreds of cars just passing through our city. My plan is to attract businesses and investment to make Lilburn a destination. Lilburn is a multi- cultural city. That is its beauty and its strength.
I also believe in having safe well kept neighborhoods and great schools. Becoming a better city takes each of us giving the best of our time and service. I’m determined to give my best service to the citizens of Lilburn if elected. Whenever I have been asked to serve in any capacity l have done so with dignity, honesty and integrity.”
