My focus as a member of the City Council is:
• To encourage the economic or business base for the city of Des Moines (Downtown, Business Park and Pacific Highway). Proponent to shop and eat locally whenever possible. Provide support and encouragement for our businesses to succeed. I want to ensure the city is able to maintain and improve its services and infrastructure without raising our property taxes.
• To ensure the vision of downtown (the Marina District) and the Marina itself are realized, and ensure the enhancement and protection of our waterfronts with quality access (Marina, Redondo and our parks) so residents and visitors can enjoy this wonderful city for years to come.
• To listen, hear and support the needs (Infrastructure, Crime Prevention, Enhancements, Airport Issues, etc.) of all nine great neighborhoods within the city of Des Moines (Central Des Moines, Marina District, North Central, North Hill, Pacific Ridge, Redondo, South Des Moines, Woodmont and Zenith.)
