Currently I am unaware of the full details on the city's financial situation, but with limited knowledge I would say that at this point in time, it looks like we are turning in the right direction. Now we need to continue to focus on the positive and work harder on the negative issues.
We need to work toward getting more jobs in the area on all skill levels. Providing more job training to the community will help us to achieve a better work force.
As citizens, I feel we need to take more pride in our community, and we need to support each other as neighbors and report strange behaviors. We need to take time to talk with law officers, instead of viewing them as the enemy. Citizens need to establish neighborhood watches.
City council members are public officials elected or appointed to represent a ward or district of a city, as the municipal governing body typically known as city council. We vote on laws and proposals relating to various community issues, such as allocation of funding to provide for public services, community development projects, and budget matters.
I plan to work diligently with fellow council members and the Mayor to establish positive improvements in our city, and to work diligently to achieve more jobs for our community, establish more family friendly activities, develop cleaner parks, establish facilities that will enable more family gatherings and establish more restaurants.
