Over the past years, actions from the council, lack of communication, and access to the truth have created anger and division. This hurts every one of us and lessens the power of the community. Our community is what will allow us to grow together. We intend to LISTEN to the community, include them in our future, and provide clear accurate information to the public. Deephaven is unique; it is a multi-generational village within a large metro area. Our history is one of the family vacations, cottages, and eventually year-round houses. We believe we need to understand and respect those who developed this city into the amazing place it is. Our fear is we are losing sight of that heritage. Our opinion is the charm, scale, and fabric of the community is being lost. We are running for the council because we believe Deephaven needs our knowledge and background to move forward. Our ordinances are outdated and need a full public review. Chowen’s Corner needs to be studied and prepare for redevelopment when the time comes.
