“I am proud to ask my neighbors and friends for the opportunity to serve my home city. I believe Portsmouth is at a turning point where we must fight for a bright future while never ignoring our proud past.
I firmly believe that the character of our city lies in its people and not its buildings. We must assure that we build a community where we encourage growth but don’t leave our neighbors behind.
I am confident that together we can build a Portsmouth that works for all of us.”
