I am announcing my candidacy for Polk City Council. I have been a resident of Polk City for 13 years. I am excited for the opportunity to be on Polk City Council again. I served on Polk City’s Planning and Zoning Commission for three years before being elected to City Council in 2011. I served on the City Council until early 2015, when my family and I moved to Fort Dodge due to a transfer in employment. I have also been a volunteer on the Four Seasons Festival Planning Committee.


During my first term on the City Council, Polk City saw significant residential growth, as well as new retail, including Fareway grocery store. I want to continue to see the city grow with new amenities, while striving for improved quality of life for the residents of Polk City. I understand the challenges of a growing community and recognize the importance of balancing the needs and wants of the city departments, as well as its residents.


I look forward to meeting citizens and listening to their concerns. I am excited to be an advocate for the citizens of Polk City.
