What is the most pressing city issue that warrants council attention?

Myself and people that I have talked to feel that communication among the council is a big thing that needs to improve. The overall impression of the council is like watching a circus. When bringing something forward, it is key to let everyone know and do research to have the facts to support your request. People don’t always make great decisions when they are surprised last minute.

Assess the state of city services. Does anything need improving, and how can that come about?

I believe that the city has some room for improvement in the areas of technology. Changes are being made, but I do believe that more areas can be addressed. We need to evaluate to continue to find ways to make cost-effective changes to be more efficient. I have been in meetings where it was mentioned that software being used is 10 to 15 years old.

Why are you the most qualified candidate for this office?

Over the past couple of years I have gotten involved in city workings by becoming a member of the Redevelopment Authority as well as volunteering with the organization promoting new business downtown. I have also spent the last two years attending City Council meetings to stay aware of the issues the city is facing. I feel that I will be able to work and communicate with all of the other alderman that are elected.
