My first trip to Neptune Beach was in 2001. I visited the local spots at the time: Sun Dog Diner, Pete’s Bar, Tamas, Al’s Pizza; and I was immediately drawn to the charm and simplicity of Neptune Beach. That was 21 years ago. I bought property here in 2004 and decided to call Neptune Beach my home in 2009. My fiancé, architect Johnny Gray, and I have made great friends and we enjoy the unique community spirit of Neptune Beach.
I’ve watched our city evolve into one of the most desirable areas in North Florida. Neptune Beach has a charm that is truly special, and I want to keep it that way. Future development must be carefully crafted to protect and maintain the quaint neighborhood character that makes us special and that captured my heart all those years ago.
To thrive as a city, we must ensure projects are well thought out, properly budgeted, and expertly executed. We need to plan now for maintenance and replacement of our decaying critical infrastructure. Communication is essential. Residents must feel they have a voice and that their concerns are valid.
My experience building diverse teams and managing multimillion-dollar projects will bring a unique skillset to the council, but the long and enduring fondness I hold for my community is where the true value of my service lies. I hope I can count on your vote for Neptune Beach City Council Seat 4.
