Why am I running for city council? My decision to run for city council grew out of my frustration of watching my city tax grow 70% since I first purchased my home (8% in the last year). It grew out of my frustration of watching a 4 to 1 vote occur 17 times during 23 meetings. The end results being many neighborhoods within our city being steam rolled on how the land in their neighborhoods should be used and $10 million bond debt being created within the last 12 months. It grew out of being told there is a 500 foot notification limit on projects that directly impact a neighborhood.
As your next city council member, my pledge is to listen to your concerns; maintain a balance between growth, development and quality of life; hold the line on taxes and debt; and work tirelessly for the people.
