Sam Crowl (Dem)
Sustainability Project Coordinator
What are your skills, talents and expertise that will help you contribute to the ongoing work of City Council?
What are the most important issues facing the city of Athens in the next two years?
Given that state funds are constantly shrinking, how would you suggest prioritizing the budget? Would you consider raising local revenue and, if so, how would you propose to do that?
Education and Experience
West Elementary, Athens Middle School and Athens High School (1985)
B.A. (English) Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin (1989)
M.A. (International Affairs) Ohio University (1999)
In my current position with Ohio University’s Office of Sustainability my work with a wide segment of the campus community positions me well to closely consider the important symbiotic relationship between the City and University. In particular my experience working on design and construction projects as well as transportation issues has provided me with a background that will prove useful in contributing to the ongoing work of City Council
With a new director of Arts, Parks and Recreation and a new city pool under construction I feel that the support and direction of that department will be important in the coming years. The department already has an excellent and knowledgeable staff whose expertise will be the foundation of the department’s continued progress. I believe that smart growth and complete street policies will be issues that can assist the ongoing revitalization of our community.
Budget priorities are very difficult to determine without intimate knowledge of operations. I would appreciate chances to learn as much as possible about city operations, revenue and state funds projections, current city priorities and revenue streams before I can carefully consider suggestions towards establishing priorities.
