Let’s Keep Gilbert Gilbert

Gilbert Town Hall

My wife and I live in Gilbert with our four children because we like the small-town feel. We like the sense of community—no small feat for a population of over 260,000. Gilbert is a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family. There is more that we need to maintain and keep the same in Gilbert than there is that needs to change.

We’re fortunate to have beautiful open spaces where we can enjoy nature with friends and family. Our crime rates are low and we have great amenities. We can make improvements to traffic and roadways. We’ll need to take good care of other infrastructure like wastewater and utilities.

Like any town, we have problems from time to time. We’ll need to be careful to keep taxes low so that residents are able to keep more of their hard-earned money. We’ll need to limit needless regulations so that businesses want to come to Gilbert, bringing jobs with them to boost our economy. The good news is that there isn’t a lot to change here in Gilbert. But, we do need to be prepared for the future.

In the wake of deep economic turmoil and uncertainty, steady conservative leadership is what Gilbert needs to get on its feet and back to work. I’m committed to putting the residents of our great town first by ensuring government fulfills its role without outgrowing it. I’d appreciate your vote in my run for mayor of Gilbert. Join me in working to keep Gilbert, Gilbert.
