issues

I’m running for Ward 1 City Council to ensure that Edmond is the best place to raise a family and grow a business.

Education

Edmond’s schools make it the best place in Oklahoma to raise a family.

As a member of the City Council, I will work with our Edmond School Board, colleges, career tech, and state elected officials to support education in Edmond.

I will also work with the Edmond business community to help connect workforce needs to the many education partners found in our city.

Recreation

Edmond’s recreational opportunities make it not only the best but a fun place to raise a family.

Edmonds parks and win-win public-private recreational partnerships provide best-in-class facilities.

Liberty Fest, Heard on Hurd, Edmond Vibes, Edmond Arts Festival, and Cycle 66 just to name a few are all part of the community, culture, entertainment, and tourism found in Downtown Edmond.

I will work to support our long-standing world-class community events and expand our long-term planning to provide recreational opportunities that will improve our quality of life.

transportation

Transportation and traffic are top concerns for Edmond Citizens, impacting families and slowing down commerce.

We need a transparent, transportation plan that the citizens of Edmond vote to support.

Long-term planning that anticipates not just reacts to increased transportation and traffic is needed as Edmond grows and prioritizes dedicated funding.

public safety

The first responders who serve Edmond and help keep us safe make our community the best place to raise a family.

Tom is endorsed by

  • Edmond Firefighters Association

  • Edmond Fraternal Order of Police

As Edmond grows, so will the need for our first responders to be supported by our entire community with continued dedicated funding and the training they need to safely serve our city.

CITY SERVICES

Edmond will modernize the services that citizens and business leaders need to raise a family and grow a business.

As Edmond grows, I will work to identify technology that citizens and business owners can utilize to make their lives and work easier.
