Experience First Venture into Public Office
As a first time candidate for Public Office, I bring a fresh perspective and "One Team, One Dream" attitude to collaborate and work with counterparts in a positive, progressive way, that will help to accelerate the Significant Growth and Prosperity that our N. Texas Community and Leaders have helped to establish. 20+ years as a Business Leader has given me the experience, I believe, to work cooperatively with all other elected officials, in the best interest for our community.
The City has an open forum for all citizens to attend and meet with City Officials, at Regular meetings, which I believe are important to maintain so we understand the needs of community citizens and businesses. I believe it's important for City Officials to be readily available to his or her constituents. So much information is passed along through social media, and I believe The City could do more to communicate through this outlet.
It's important to me to preserve the Natural Beauty and nature trails that Place 4 represents, and to insure that future development insures a respect for these environmentally sensitive areas. It's key that any future development complements and harmoniously incorporates into the least detrimental way possible to the surrounding areas.
We Texans like to drive fast, but safety of our families and safety for our Children should always be top of mind when making these decisions. It's important to understand the symbiotic relationship that transportation infrastructure plays with residential and business development. I've seen communities with Expansive Growth and little consideration for transportation infrastructure, and the adverse effects it has on the citizens who are impacted. I'll insure that as corporate and residential growth continues to expand, transportation infrastructure grows as quickly as businesses and communities do.
I was fortunate enough to grow up in Plano during it's expansive growth in the 80's and 90's to become one of the most prosperous city's in N. Texas. I'll work to do the same for Place 4 in The Colony, with an open mind, and insight from community leaders, and fellow council members who continue to do a good job, in my opinion.
I think it's important that the City take the recommendations of the CDC, state and Federal Government leaders, to develop and implement a plan of action that suits our city and our city business's needs.
Dire Times usually call for Great Leadership. Great Leadership only happens with clear and constant communication. The more people understand what their community leaders are doing to help during challenging times, the more assurance people will have that community leaders are working through emergency situations, in their best interest. Instant Text messaging with constant updates of situations and resolutions, during each phase, in a digitally incorporated world, I believe is one of the best ways to communicate with citizens.
Finding constructive ways and solutions to work through deficits are key to any successful budget adjustment. Understanding where reallocation of funds can be made with limited impact to resources is instrumental to replacing shortfalls.
