My vision for Lancaster is to ensure the City's success is shared by all -- no one is left out, or left behind. My first priority is to strengthen our neighborhoods by proactively addressing resident-driven priorities and economic development. Second, I will work to remove barriers to employment and higher paying jobs in support of Coalition to Combat Poverty recommendations; and, finally, I am committed to ensuring sound local government -- fiscal responsibility, transparency, and engagement.
