“Sheridan is an absolutely wonderful community and it is my great pleasure to serve as Mayor. I am excited about the future of our community. Mayor Kinskey did the heavy lifting and his shoes will not be easy to fill. I am committed to carrying out the work he began and remain committed to the initiatives we have set forth in the past several years. Diversification of our economy will ensure slow, steady growth so that our citizens can enjoy good paying jobs with good benefits. We will continue to focus on infrastructure. We will continue to focus on our pathways, parks, open space and creek restoration – – all crucial to our quality of life. Keeping our community a safe place is of paramount importance and caring for our seniors remains a high priority as well.”
“Building relationships is key – – my door is always open and I welcome your comments and suggestions.”
