Effective Leadership and Good Governance

When a community is healthy, it can get things done. The residents, elected officials, city staff, and local organizations work together to address community challenges. The past few years have me worried about our future. We need a Mayor who can foster a healthy community discourse, not create discord. We need a Mayor who can support an effective and engaged City Council and guide them towards shared goals and priorities. Lastly, we need to maintain professional staff that can offer support to the Mayor and Council to address some of the significant challenges we are facing.
