Notable quote: "I'm a concerned citizen who wants to make a difference. ... The reason I'm running is because we have a dismal 1% growth over the last 12 months, as well as over 6% unemployment, and, of course, the deficit. I support helping local businesses by [the city] giving them tax incentives -- and not just to the national chains."
