My overall objective is to work with the Citizens, City Council members, City Hall Management, the POA, the Lago Vista Chamber of Commerce and the Lago Vista School District towards a more organized, efficient, and inclusive City government. I believe we should be working together, collaboratively, openly, and respectfully, despite differences of opinion and ideas. I believe we should be working with each other, not competing with each other, or working against each other. It should not be territorial between entities, but rather collaboration in order to enhance the living experience in our community.
