In recent years, seismic waves of turmoil shook the world: the pandemic, the housing crisis, inflation, rising homelessness, widespread burnout. Anxiety and stress caused by overwhelming issues fractured consensus on solutions. In the wake of all this, our city, like so many others, was fatigued by divisions and looking for answers.

Voters from diverse backgrounds embraced him as a refreshing change—our cheerful and inspiring new mayor, and the lovely woman always right there beside him.
His source of unwavering support—his wife, Abbey.
