Maintain Community Services
As Primary Day approaches, I would like to take this opportunity to distinguish myself from the other candidates running for City Council in the 5th District. The number one issue facing our District is taxes. Simply put, my position is “NO TAX INCREASES.” Unfortunately, some of my opponents do not share my view. In fact, fellow Republican candidate, Mike Breen, when asked about the recent 4.8% tax increase, stated publicly, “SOME BILLS HAVE TO BE PAID.” He has made it apparent that he is willing to accept tax increases and spend our hard earned money… WELL, I AM NOT! That is why this District CANNOT afford to elect Mike Breen.
Now, more than ever, we need a fiscally conservative representative that is not willing to accept this Government’s spending habits and who will fight to save your money – and that is exactly what I plan to do.
As your next Councilman, I will advocate for the return of neighborhood schools. I strongly believe that we should have the opportunity to send our children to schools in the community we call home. I will also fight to maintain our City services and preserve the quality of life which we have become accustom to, and quite frankly, deserve!
In order to succeed, it will require a strong, articulate advocate. For too long we’ve seen a complacent City Council providing no solutions to these problems. With My legal, financial and accounting experience, I will bring new and creative solutions to the City; demand a line by line budget review; propose contributions to health benefits from all City Workers (Council-members included); fight to drastically reduce the City’s car fleet; consolidate City services; and demand that big development pay its fair share of taxes, which will help relieve the burden from us, the homeowners.
By implementing cost saving measures, some of which I have outline above, we will be able to ensure that our community remains safe and clean by avoiding unnecessary cuts to our services. The only way to accomplish this goal is with your help.
Now is the time for a NEW INDEPENDENT VOICE. CHANGE IS NEEDED – CHANGE IS COMING, and together, we will succeed on Primary Day, September 13, 2011.
I need your support.
