A RENEWED HOPE FOR MARION

 

There’s a lot to love about Marion - we have some incredible individuals, youth, and groups in our community. And though we’ve made some good progress in the past few years, I believe we can do even better. Let’s work together to improve the quality of life in Marion, keep our local government accountable, and strengthen our growing economy:

Improving our Quality of Life

Residents of Marion deserve to experience a quality of life and health that is the best in the State. Income levels, adult and childhood poverty rates, and overall quality of life, are among the worst in the state. We can leverage the resources right here in our community to overcome these issues.

Holding our Government Accountable

The role of the City Council should be to represent the best interests of everyone who lives in our city. We can build on the financial improvements made in recent years, and hold our government to a higher level of transparency and accountability.

Promoting our Growing Economy

Individuals and businesses are increasingly choosing to invest in Marion. We are seeing entrepreneurs put their ideas into action and it is having a ripple effect throughout our community. As a city, we need to do everything we can to support efforts like these that grow our local economy and provide employment.

ABOUT ME

 
Lark-Song-Coaches-11.2015-8.jpg

I’m proud to call Marion home along with my wife, Megan and our two children, Elliot and Isabella. My wife and I have both started small businesses in Marion; for the past six years, my wife has run the non-profit that she started right downtown. The opportunity has presented itself to us more than once to relocate to somewhere else, and we’ve said no. We love this community.

I believe there is a renewed, contagious hope for the future of Marion. I’m excited to work for this community and help us develop our true potential - we really are a “City of Champions!”
