Aberdeen is moving forward at a slow rate, but we are moving forward. In the County, we need more family-wage jobs, and we can’t solve that on our own. But in making the changes that we have been and moving in a more positive direction we are making ourselves more attractive. Not only to our own residents, but visitors alike. We need the visitors, if we can develop a niche to bring people here it will help quite a bit. Just think if Joe Tourist, visits or drives through he may work for or own (Insert name of Company here) and they might see us as a progressive place for their next location or new business.
Housing. We need more housing for them. It’s a nationwide epidemic right now. I understand the residents are frustrated with what is happening right now in our own backyard because it’s what is in our faces. But if you visit other cities they are dealing with the exact same drug and homelessness issues. I am just as frustrated as a lot of our citizens.
My commitment to senior citizens is that I won't forget them. They are such a backbone of our community. Their histories and experiences should be valued. The previous generations have such strength and fortitude we could learn a lot from them as we move forward.
Aberdeen has a diverse cultural make up. There are some amazing immigrants that make up our local community. I do believe that they should do everything in their power to go through the processes of becoming legal US citizens. We should be able to point them in the steps to make that happen.
