What is the most significant challenge facing the City of Poway, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Respuesta de Jonathan "Jon" Ryan:

I believe that Poway faces many challenges, from water issues to maintaining our facilities with sound financial structure, to revitalizing areas of Poway that are not fitting with the City in the Country motto all the way to fixing some negative interactions with residents.

The most significant issue currently is city communication with residents and transparency out of City Hall. Our city manager was essentially let go because he was cutting deals without approval and not bringing significant errors at city hall out to the public and the council. Our current meeting structure only allows comments before presentations are made and if issues or inaccuracies come up after the preentation, the public is not allowed to comment. This needs to change. The birght light of day needs to shine on all city operations, the public needs to be better informed and City hall needs to become transparent.

They replaced the manager with a 25 year Poway employee without even looking at any other candidates for the job. That does not show me a management looking to change despite all the issues that have come out in the last 2 years. We have been told over and over that there is a plan to fix the issues. But its has been months and not one comment has been made about what they are doing to prevent the problems.

That needs to change.

I have a history of turning around troubled systems and I am anxious to get started fixing Poway. I want Poway City Hall to be known as the most transparent and ethical City in California. Please help me by giving me your vote. And please tell your friends!
