Campaign Message I will never forget that residents have put me on the council to represent them. I pledge to always be available to the residents and when I am making my decisions on how I will vote I will always keep the residents best interest the top priority.
1. As your elected official I will keep public safety as my top priority. By making sure all the dollars slated for police and fire are used for their departments. 2. Blight has become a major problem in our city. Blight must be addressed by enforcing all codes, and seeking federal grants to remove blighted properties. 3. A majority of our roads are in need of repair and need our attention. Just to let you know more road projects are slated for 2018. We must continue to plan for our future by seeking grants and Federal road revenue sources and not to put it on you the tax payers.
"You work hard for your money to pay your taxes. I understand that you want me, as your city council member, to see to it that every dollar is spent wisely. I am committed to lowering the tax burden and to maintain the high quality of service that you, the citizen, deserve".
I would invite you the residents to come to visit our council meetings and express your feelings on the city. Council meetings are twice a month at 7 pm on the first and third Monday's of the month at Burton City Hall. If you are unable to attend I would encourage you to watch our live council meetings on our city website, www.burtonmi.gov.
I come with four years of Burton City Council experience. I currently sit on Burton City Council and was chosen by current Burton City Council members to fill the vacant seat. I currently sit on the Public Access Committee, Parks & Recreation Committee, and Friends of the Burton Library. I have also served on the Metro Alliance and Legislative Committees in the past.
