THANK YOU for not just reelecting me to serve all of Portsmouth, but increasing my margin of victory from twelve votes in 2015, to seven hundred and eighty-two votes this past election!

All politics are local. My experiences in Baghdad led me to relentlessly pursue achieving energy independence, mitigating climate change, and protecting our natural resources. As individuals, communities, and as a city, we all have a stake in a more sustainable future. I am excited to soon bring forward for City Council adoption the Renewable Energy Committee's local energy policy. In addition to being a framework for the government of the City of Portsmouth, the policy will also be for residents, businesses, and Pease to all become part of a Net Zero Energy Community.

I look forward to continuing to champion issues residents bring to my attention, offer forward thinking individual initiatives, and work with the other City Councilors to keep Portsmouth vibrant.
