I want to see the town grow and become a larger village with more businesses. We need a gas station and some mom and pop type of business that will make more people stop by Malcolm on their way to Branched Oak Lake. I want to see more young families move into Malcolm and make this place their home.
The safety of our residents are first. We need to make sure the streets are cleaned and safe to travel on after a major snow storm and that this is done in a timely matter. As a member of the fire department, we are always ready to help in the event of a natural disaster and I would want to make sure that they continue to have all the resources necessary to do their work.
I would want to see Malcolm continue to grow in the correct way, keeping its small town feeling but welcoming all new residents. I would want to see Malcolm become a town that people want to move to, so see some economic growth with small business including a place to dine in. Water for the town, good drinking water and enough of it has always been a question about Malcolm. We need to continue to study this and try to find ways to make sure that we have plenty of good water.
The biggest challenge to Malcolm is allowing and continuing growth, but keeping our small town atmosphere. We need to grow but need to make sure we still remain small and caring in our attitude towards people. We have to make sure we control how the growth happens, a little at a time, and as new houses are built and fill up, then we allow more to be built. We don't want to build to fast, controlled growth is what is necessary.
