Together, with your support we'll build a Clarkston that is safer, greener and more prosperous. We'll create a community that celebrates our youth, opening doors for their futures. And together, we'll create a Clarkston that our residents will be proud to call home.
Personal Motto: You can't change the world, if you can't change yourself
