Why am I running for city council? My decision to run for city council grew out of my frustration of watching my yearly city tax grow 45% since I first purchased my home (7% in the last year). It grew out of my frustration of watching a 4 to 1 vote occur 17 times during 23 meetings over the last 12 months. The end results being many neighborhoods within our city being steam rolled on how the land in their neighborhoods should be used and a $10 million bond debt being created. 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.
