“I want to give back to the town that has given so much to me in my 39 years here, AND to continue to protect that hometown community spirit we have all come to love here in Parker. My grandparents started our family legacy 3 generations ago in Parker and I am continuing it with my 4 children.
This town is full of wonderful, powerful people who deserve an equally powerful voice to represent them on town council.
It doesn’t matter if you just moved to Parker or if you have been here your entire life, each resident and business owner deserves a representative who truly knows & understands what Parker is and why it is worth protecting.”

Will this help our town and our residents? How can we protect our Town now and in the future?
