Having lived in Watertown my whole life, I have long worked for positive change throughout this great city. I now feel the time has come for me to seek elected office in the April 2016 election. I want to bring fresh ideas and positive solutions to the City of Watertown by running for Mayor.
I have been an active member in the community for many years, volunteering at the Watertown Humane Society and the Gentle Healer Pet Clinic, in which I gained valuable experience in business operations. In addition, I have been a business owner for nearly six years, co-founding the Global Conservation Group with my father in 2008.
I graduated from Watertown High School in 2013 and currently attend Madison Area Technical College, after which I plan to transfer to the University of Wisconsin Madison to complete my studies and obtain a law degree. While I understand some may wish to vote for an older candidate, this election isn't about age. This election is about experience, and it's not just about experience, it's about the right experience. The right experience to move Watertown forward.
Having previous business experience, I understand what it takes to create more jobs. As mayor, I will expand Watertown's core industries like agriculture and manufacturing. I will also work to improve our city's infrastructure to create a more durable, pristine living space for our citizens.
I will work to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 for large business employees so we can keep up with inflation. If the minimum wage kept up with inflation, it would currently reside at $10.59 per hour.
I am also a strong proponent of individual freedoms. I will vigorously defend the right of responsible law-abiding citizens to bear arms, decriminalizing marijuana for adults and supporting the freedom to marry who you love.
Finally, as mayor, I believe we can turn Watertown into an example for other Wisconsin cities. Will you join me in moving Watertown forward?
