My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety - Keeping the city a safe place to live and work is a top priority for government. Bringing together the Police Department and residents we can take steps to reduce the opportunities for crime.
  • Responsible growth – Our city has experienced so much growth and residents have benefitted through new businesses and great services. Keeping the resident’s perspective in mind while searching for growth opportunities is key.
  • Information sharing – Residents want to hear more of what is going on in the city. Additional channels of communication have been established but we need to find new ways to reach out.
