"I am running for Mayor because I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to thrive."
I moved to Madison almost 20 years ago for an environmental internship. Of course I fell in love with Madison - the lakes, the farmer's market, the summer festivals, the food scene. The internship grew into a job, and that led me to my current job at the UW. I put down roots by buying a modest home in the Eken Park neighborhood and getting into local politics. I met my partner Amy in 2008, and I couldn't be happier. Everyone should have that kind of opportunity - but not everyone does, and that's why I'm running for Mayor. I have the experience and vision to make Madison number one - for everyone.
