Hartsville, SC – August 1st, 2023

Dear residents of Hartsville,

I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Hartsville City Council, representing District 6. As a dedicated and passionate member of this community, I am committed to bringing positive change, progress, and a fresh perspective to our district and the city as a whole.

My background in real estate, hospitality management, serving on nonprofit and civic boards, and extensive volunteer work, has given me valuable insights into the needs and aspirations of our residents. With a deep love for our community and a burning passion for progress, I am committed to working to make Hartsville an even better place to live, work, and thrive.

Today, I am honored to present my campaign platform for the upcoming city council elections. 


Effective communication is the cornerstone of a strong community. If elected, I will prioritize keeping all residents informed about city council activities, decisions, and upcoming projects/events. Transparency will be at the heart of my approach, and I will utilize various channels, including community engagements and an enhanced online presence, to ensure that you are always in the loop. My ultimate goal is to encourage citizen participation and create an environment where your concerns and ideas are heard, valued, and taken into account.


I firmly believe that public office comes with a responsibility to be accountable to the people we serve. As your city council representative, I pledge to conduct all city council business in an open and transparent manner, not just because it is required, but because it is the right thing to do. I will advocate for better metrics to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of city programs and services. By holding city staff accountable for reporting these metrics to residents, we can demonstrate progress and identify areas for improvement, ensuring that our community receives the best possible services and outcomes.


Hartsville’s growth and prosperity are deeply intertwined with innovation. To foster sustainable economic development, I will focus on attracting new businesses and industries to our town while also supporting our local entrepreneurs. Encouraging local entrepreneurship maintains the charm of our small town while drawing interest from larger businesses and industries. Additionally, I am committed to being an advocate for environmentally friendly practices. Initiatives such as improved bike lanes and expanded public transit options not only benefit our environment but also promote equality by providing everyone with access to opportunities for earning a living and enjoying all that Hartsville has to offer.

Together, we can build a stronger, more inclusive, and sustainable Hartsville. As your representative, I promise to listen, learn, and act in the best interest of our community. My vision is to work collaboratively with all stakeholders, ensuring that every voice is heard and every perspective considered.

I humbly ask for your support and vote in the upcoming elections. Let us create a brighter future for Hartsville, where innovation, accountability, and communication drive our progress.
