From Classroom to City Hall: Applying My MPA to Lead Surprise, AZ


Earning my Master's degree in Public Administration from Grand Canyon University was a transformative experience. It equipped me with the skills and knowledge to tackle modern issues in policy and governance, and it's these insights that I bring to my campaign for mayor of Surprise, AZ.


Recognizing and addressing modern issues throughout my studies, I explored ways to recognize and address contemporary challenges in policy and governance. Whether it's improving public safety, enhancing community services, or fostering economic growth, my education has prepared me to understand and respond to the needs of our community effectively.


Leadership and Human Capital Development

One of the key areas of focus during my MPA program was leadership and human capital development. I cultivated a leadership style that emphasizes ethical decision-making and collaborative problem-solving. As mayor, I will apply these principles to build a strong, cohesive team dedicated to serving the people of Surprise.


Ethical Decision-Making and Problem-Solving

In public administration, ethical decision-making is crucial. My coursework challenged me to consider the ethical implications of policy decisions and develop strategies for solving complex problems. I am committed to transparency, accountability, and integrity in all my actions as your mayor.


Core Issues in Public Sector Organizations

Understanding the core issues that public sector organizations face is essential for effective governance. My education provided me with a deep dive into these challenges, from budget constraints to resource allocation and stakeholder engagement. As mayor, I will leverage this knowledge to ensure that our city operates efficiently and meets the needs of all residents.


Applying My Knowledge to Surprise

Surprise is a growing city with immense potential. By applying what I’ve learned through my MPA program, I will work to create policies that promote sustainable development, enhance public services, and ensure a high quality of life for all residents.


My commitment to continuous learning and improvement means that I am always seeking new ways to serve our community better. With your support, I am excited to bring my expertise and passion for public service to the role of mayor of Surprise, AZ.


Together, we can build a brighter future for our city.
