LIST OF ISSUES
As a former city employee I have a unique perspective on how the city
functions. I have seen and experienced wonderful things in my city. I
have also seen need for change and efficiency. I made the decision to
run for commissioner to bring positive changes to the city.
As a Veteran, I bring a sense of duty, dedication and devotion. As a
retired Police Sergeant for this city, I bring 29 years of government
experience and service to the public. I understand the need for
repairing our streets, for productive communication between city
government and it’s citizens and the need to have a voice in government
One of my first goals is to improve communication by responding to
questions citizens may have and addressing their concerns in a
timely manner. My second goal is to improve government efficiency by
engaging the city employees in an effort to understand what they feel is
necessary for a good working relationship.
The majority of the concerns I have heard from citizens was fiscal
responsibility and infrastructure. I want to ensure money is spent
responsibly and all the city departments are fully staffed so
infrastructure work and public safety are used efficiently.
The biggest challenge for the city is responsible growth. I want to take a
look at the process that is required for businesses to establish
themselves in the city and to look into the city’s inspection process and
impact fees. From there I can gauge what changes may be needed to
attract businesses into our city
