I am very familiar with the city and its functions. I have worked hard to keep Ralston independent and growing, and dedicated many years to Ralston's people and workers. The new Hinge Project will add housing and businesses to the downtown. As a member of the council and Historical Architectural committee, I want to make sure the new development preserves the old. As a finance committee member, my concerns are insurance, providing services, jobs, and updates related to Covid 19.
My priorities are: Continued progress on the Hinge Project Getting the Arena back open with Covid protection in place Continued work on streets and other infrastructure Paying off bonds and other debts
Covid 19 has temporarily closed the Ralston Arena, businesses, etc. We need to get them back in operation as well as getting the parks and playing fields safely opened. We are working with the Arena, businesses, Ralston high school, and the sports committee to achieve this. Paying off debt. We have applied for CARES act help, and are budgeting. Infrastructure. Our One and Six Year plan addresses the street repair needs.
