Dylan is running for City Council because he believes that the only way to make a change is to make a connection. Dylan understands the necessity of public policy and municipal jurisdiction, but sees the bigger value of a community that is united under a common vision towards the greater good. Politics has the ability to divide us and create stagnation for our communities. At the same time, politics has the ability to unite us, feeling empowered to take ownership of something that is bigger than ourselves.
Dylan has extensive experience working with local non-profits and ministries in which he has tackled issues such as homelessness, food insecurity, financial well being, race relations, job development, and equity design. In addition to his non-profit work, Gunnels also owns a business that assists individuals with financial literacy and entrepreneurship.
