Why I'm Serving: 
“As a native St. Louisan who grew up in North County, I am deeply aware of the issues affecting many parts of our region. The question we must face is this: are we actively engaged with members of our community who are, by virtue of visible and invisible barriers, less able to take full advantage of the educational, healthcare and economic benefits that many of us accept as standard? The members of the Commission on Ferguson will listen, learn and help create an agenda to move our region forward at this critical time. I am honored to serve.”
