My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase transparency between City Hall and the City Council, and therefore between the City and the citizens
  • Better manage our fiscal responsibilities. With limited resources spending must not exceed our revenues.
  • Public safety is a priority for our residents, and we need to insure that we have adequate police staffing.
