My priorities for economic development would be to keep the momentum moving with the 84th Street project. Making sure that sustainable, long term partnerships are further developed and investigating what aspects need to be leveraged to fully utilize and enjoy the urbanization of the area. All while not loosing sight on opportunities in other parts of the city as well. Especially Ward 4 where there is plenty to continue to build on and grow economically.
My top priorities in an extreme weather event would be resources for emergency services and first responders. I would review or help develop a plan for specific events or scenarios . I would make sure all parties involved know their parts and the needed resources were in place to act on those plans. I would also work to make sure trials or simulations were run to confirm the plans work and that everyone knows their parts including communications to the citizens.
My top priority would always be to do what I feel is best for future generations. Above all else I would make decisions that would benefit generations to come.

My next priority would be make sure that city finances are held in check and that all expenses are bringing the most value. I would vigorously pursue any opportunity to lower expenses and taxes for citizens.

My third priority would be transportation flow and safety. I would work to help improve the transportation system. Developing an infrastructure that allows for efficient travel to all parts of the city in an as environmentally friendly manner as possible is a key component to the future of our community.
The biggest challenge I see at the moment is the 84th Street redevelopment. While this is one of the biggest opportunities for the city that I can remember it is also one filled with many moving parts. Constant vigilance will need to be payed so the citizens of the city can take full advantage of this opportunity. That challenge needs to be meet while not overlooking opportunities in other parts of the city. I would make sure to provide that vigilance and attention needed to take full advantage of this opportunity.
