"I cherish the Wimberley Valley’s charm and character as well as our natural resources. Working with your city council members to preserve these attributes is very important to me. Equally as important to me is continuing to partner with the county, local and regional organizations to improve the safety and quality of life for our residents and those who visit our special home."
