Civic Involvement
I currently serve on the city's budget-writing Financial Affairs Committee, as well as the Transportation Affairs Committee. I received an appointment by the mayor to serve on the Community Development Authority (CDA).   
I am humbled to be one of three recipients of the Wauwatosa Patch's Wauwatosan of the Year (2012) for efforts to improve safety on Wauwatosa Avenue between North Avenue and Center Street.
5th District News
In 2014, North Avenue will undergo a major resurfacing and re-striping between 60th Street and 76th Street. The city's Traffic & Safety Committee is currently reviewing a proposal that will remove the chicane pattern and instead create a straight traffic flow with added parking and a bike lane on each side of the street. This proposal is consistent with the East Tosa North Avenue Master Plan adopted in 2011. If the Council approves the proposal, we expect construction to begin in late summer / early fall.  For information on the East Tosa North Avenue Master Plan, please follow this link: View Plan
