Philosophy of Local Government
Local government should serve the people. It should manage growth wisely, be fiscally responsible and be sustainable in its considerations. Council members should work with the people they represent and be transparent. Our economy right now is a priority and we should follow the Comprehensive Master Plan and its long-range financial plan. We need to assist with Economic Development and stimulate it to maintain the quality of life we all enjoy.
