"Let's work together to make Selma a better place to live, work, and play."

The name Selma means "high seat" and in order for us to reach our full potential as a model city for micropolitan development, we must have a vision and work with citizens to establish a long-term strategic plan.  I plan to work with community stakeholders to:

  • Conduct timely meetings.

  • Encourage citizen engagement by working with my colleagues on the council to recruit and maintain smaller, neighborhood-based community groups that can help shape the strategy for addressing the needs within each ward.

  • Maintain transparency through an online, public "report card" of council member votes and attendance posted in an easy-to-read format.

  • Reduce the amount of paper used to handle council business by transitioning to the use of tablets and other smart technology.
