I have watched obstruction, stagnation and vindictive actions routinely take place over the past 2 years. This is not the type of leadership or representation residents should be subjected to from City Council. Our city needs leaders who are willing to work together for the betterment of All. The position of Council President calls for someone with proven management experience to run the day-to-day operations of the Council office. I am that person. Our city needs to be the place everyone wants to call home. This can only be accomplished by having elected officials who can work together.
I intend to end the divide that has plagued the operations of our city government for the past 2 years. I will be the liaison between the administration and members of council that we have not had. We must be able to work together, expeditiously and without personal motives, for the best interests of all residents.
The biggest challenge(s) we currently face within our community are the loss of sustainable revenue streams that allow us the ability to grow for the future. We need to have the ability to attract new business and families. This can only be accomplished by building, rebuilding and sustaining our aging infrastructure, while looking at new ways to streamline and enhance the services, policies and processes we currently have in place. The members of our government must be willing to roll up their sleeves, unite together and work as one to provide a better city for ALL.
