18 years

2. What’s your favorite restaurant in Murray? What is your favorite dish there?

Mugsy’s Hideout on the court square. I love their cheeseburger!

3. If you had $75 to spend in Murray, where would you spend it?

Go to the Farmer’s Market, make my way around the court square shopping at some of my favorite stores. Maybe a coffee at 5th and Main, grab a cinnamon roll at Wild Mountain and stop by Shane Lee’s. I’d make a morning of being on the court square. That sounds like a really great day.

Becoming Citizen of the Year. Knowing that my community supports me and my efforts downtown means so much to me.

Friendly, homey and simple
