Welcome to the 3rd Ward! I am proud to be serving as the Common Council representative for the largest of all of the City of Rome’s districts. I was born and raised in Rome and have been a small business owner since 1997. My husband and I have two children and we have lived in the 3rd Ward for several years. Like you, I want a better community for our children and grandchildren. Yet to achieve that goal we must have strong leaders willing to listen to your concerns and committed residents who get involved. As your representative on the Common Council your voice will be heard! I will make informed decisions about our future recognizing not only the short term impacts, but also how those decisions affect our community 25 years in the future.
