1) Small business creation and development that improves resident options, reduces vacancies, and limits additional traffic congestion 2) Responsible, conservative growth that promotes the health and wellness of McCandless Residents 3) Continued improvement of personal property value while controlling residential tax burdens This can be accomplished by making decisions without outside political party interest by doing research, soliciting input from a variety of citizens, and working with existing laws and policies of the town, county and state.
Council can actively solicit the engagement of residents that are typically unrepresented, including recent immigrants and minorities by getting input from non-profit groups, churches, and county resources. Public Transportation is lacking for residents and employees of town businesses. Council can share concerns with Port Authority to expand routes, and also work with Ride-Share programs to improve affordability. Encourage Minority and Women-Owned Small Business & provide support in collaboration with existing large corporations in our town that have benefited greatly from our residents.
Keep programs including school resource officers and K-9 Unit that encourage positive police-public interactions, and add more like Coffee with a Cop. Officers must have education and/or experience in working with diverse populations including racial minorities and recent immigrants. All officers to receive continuing educ. on handling situations with individuals with mental health issues.
