Why La Rae?

headshot 10.22.14.2Cottage Grove is great place…to live, raise a family and have a business. I am doing all three. Currently Cottage Grove is experiencing a slow and healthy growth of population and business; both of these help to grow our local tax base to keep our community strong and attractive. I would like to continue to see this healthy growth in our community. Cottage Grove also has an amazing city staff. I have met with each head of department and know for a fact we have great leaders. I consider myself a student who listens yet is ready to make informed decisions when it comes time to decide. My background as a pastor, music educator and business owner provide me with a unique skill set to enhance our city’s council.
