This will be my last e-news for a while, but let’s keep in touch!
Per ethics rules, legislators are advised not to send out newsletters 30 days prior to an election. However, I’m still here to represent our district, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything!
As much as we don’t want to see summer end, it seems fall is just around the corner. That means it’s time for Sand Lake Community Council to start meeting once again!
Community council is a great way to connect with neighbors on issues impacting the quality of life in our area, weigh in on community decisions, and talk with your elected officials (both municipal and state).
During campaign years, ethics rules recommend that legislators take a break from sending out “mass mailings” (both mail and electronic newsletters) within 30 days of a primary or general election. This is to help make sure state resources aren’t used in a way that could be confused with “campaign mailings.”
So, while I am still very much working for the district, this will be my last e-news for a while. That said, please know I’m still here and available, so don’t hesitate to reach out!

The request is to rezone the 6.2 acre lot from a “mixed residential” to a “residential mixed-use” district, allowing compact condos/apartments to be built on top of stores and offices (and at higher density).Read more
