A resilient and sustainable community is one that is able to minimize, withstand and bounce back from economic, social and environmental disruptions - while also ensuring future generations can thrive. To ensure this, I want to:

  • Include resilience and sustainability in the next strategic planning cycle by incorporating the  NEST Sustainable Naperville 2036 recommendations

  • Build a plan for transitioning to cleaner, more affordable energy

  • Build a plan to improve transportation options and reduce traffic, including safe biking and electric vehicle infrastructure

  • Build a plan to manage and reduce waste more efficiently

  • Ensure local businesses have the resources they need to become more efficient, reduce waste, and save money


A ready community is strategically prepared to take advantage of opportunities, anticipates and plans for future economic and development trends, and ensures safety for everyone.   To ensure this, I want to:

  • Build our local economy across our entire community by working with local businesses to develop innovative opportunities

  • Work to bring and incentivize new businesses that provide living-wage jobs

  • Promote the work and services of our outstanding Police and Fire Departments, and ensure they are fully supported to maintain our high quality of life

A connected community is one that is informed, aware, has a voice, and maintains connections to the world around it, while including and valuing diversity.  To ensure this, I want to:


  • Expand community outreach and engagement processes and tools to help residents and businesses be more readily aware of and engaged in what is happening in our community

  • Increase transparency and public engagement in planning and development that follows best practices

  • Ensure accessible options for housing and transportation, and access to resources for all residents, especially our seniors and minority populations
