Current Job: Outside Sales for Ag Industrial Supply Company
Top 3 Priorities if Elected:
We should feel safe and protected. Laws and city codes must be enforced. No one should be granted a free pass. As a lifelong resident, I've seen the good and bad in Greenfield. We need a City Council that will do what's best for Greenfield as a whole, not what's best politically. Our Police Department has really improved in recent months and we must take steps to continue on this path. I am in favor of exploring the regional approach to public safety in South Monterey County.
I truly believe that public safety and economic growth run hand in hand. A decrease in crime builds confidence for businesses to want to come to Greenfield, which is why I am in favor of the current leadership of our police department. Also, it is time to stop talking about code enforcement and make it a priority. Our local business fronts, streets and sidewalks should be kept clean. Cars parked on lawns needs to stop. Overgrown weeds in our parks need to be addressed, whether through community clean ups or re-evaluating public works' priorities. We need to fill in our vacant buildings with much needed businesses. At the same time, we must attract "big box stores." Regionally, Greenfield is centrally located and infrastructure is in place along Walnut Avenue for this to become a reality.
BRIDGING THE DIVIDE
As a City, I feel that we have been divided for far too long and it is time to take steps to become a more united community. We must all come together and be on the same team to fight for our City. A starting point to uniting our community is realizing that we are all a part of one nation under God and we all want the best for Greenfield. It is time to put our differences aside and do what's best for our community by working together to help restore and beautify our town. We are so close in making Greenfield the town that we deserve. I would like to see more town hall meetings where people can air their concerns and questions can be addressed. I believe that a major part of the division is due to misunderstanding and misinformation.
We have huge plans for our future. Let's move forward together.
