1. Fiscal Responsibility. I stand firm in the pursuit of the appropriate level of government spending and tax to maintain sustainable public finances. 2. Communication and Transparency. I believe in operating and communicating in such a way that ts is easy for the community to see the actions and plans of government. 3.Environmental Responsibility. It is the duty of government, business, industry and individuals to invest in and protect our land, water and air.
Because equality and fair treatment of all people is important to me, I have already introduced, sponsored and passed "The McCandless Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise Contracting Policy". Requiring the Town to seek out women and minority owned businesses in the bidding process. I created the Town's "Local Small Business Bulletin Board". Women and minority business have a special designation to encourage shop local trends of these businesses. In the future, I plan to evaluate Town hiring and promotion practice, past and present to encourage equal opportunity and outcomes for all.
Police accountability begins with educating officers more about their responsibility to the community and less about the the loyalty to "the brotherhood". Police leadership must be selected and supported to allow officers to come forward with issues and concerns. Officers must be offered and required to participate in up to date training and be held to those standards. I support the development of independent grievance boards that include officers and citizens for complaints.
