Whether you’ve lived in Ferndale for decades or just a short time, the best things about Ferndale are exactly the same.  We make newcomers feel welcome, and make neighbors feel like family. It’s a special community, and it’s an honor to serve as your Mayor.

Together with our City Council, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished:

      • lowered taxes twice in the past three years, 2 mils in total (about $140 for the average homeowner);
      • launched a new community policing model to strengthen the connection between law enforcement and residents and visitors;
      • upgraded Livernois, West and East Nine Mile and Hilton to transform them into more vibrant, successful streets;
      • adopted a progressive 12-week parental leave policy to attract and retain top talent working for you.

But there’s more I’m eager to do, including continuing the transformation of our parks, expanding parking and retail in our downtown, and creating stronger neighborhoods.

I’m grateful for all the support and friendship I have received. I know our best days are yet to come, and together we will keep moving Ferndale forward!
