My Approach

My approach will be actively recruiting residents and business owners to not only take a more active role in the city but report to the Council or the city’s committees.

A few years back, the Mr. Hardy who runs Blades, had a great idea and the city should have acted on it.  He suggested a non-government panel of small brick & mortar business meet regularly and discusses issues that the city might be able to help resolve.  They would then report to the city council on possible improvements in our code.  I want to act on this idea.

While we are at it, why not do similar panels for various parts of our great city?  We can have a Historic Preservation committee that advises the DDA.  Another panel that advises DAPS, etc.  Citizen led instead of selected people who align more with the mayor.
