Housing is a priority for our community. We need to support developers in a financially prudent way. We need affordable housing to be included as well. Jobs are an important part of Grand Island's future. Using our voter approved LB 840 funds, through our GIAEDC, we are continually looking to recruit new employers, and assist with existing employers expand. Families need public support with Libraries, Parks and recreational opportunities.
Our City investment in the Wood River Flood Control project has protected Grand island from the repeated flooding in the late 1960's. We need to continue to support our State partnership with flood control projects with the NRD. We need to continue to support our public safety team, along with maintaining excellent communication with our neighbors.
Financial Responsibility is my top priority for the City Taxpayers and Ratepayers. Making sure that we have sound policies in place that provide the needed City services in an efficient manner. Being able to continue services through a Pandemic such as today.

Family and Military support for municipal services. We need to continue to provide opportunities for our citizens so they can enjoy what Grand Island offers.

Infrastructure is the backbone of our community. We need to invest in long term solutions for Water, Sewer, Electricity, Roads, and Solid Waste facilities.
The biggest challenge for Grand Island is having leadership that serves the community. Government Organizations have a tendency to become complacent in their service levels. We need leaders who see a changing future, and discusses all of the opportunities that we have as a municipality. So I believe our biggest challenge is to have Leaders who continually strive to do better in their service to citizens. We have a dedicated staff that has a willingness to accept these challenges if we can only provide the framework of policies that support that mission.
