God, Family, Community is the motto that I live by. I can’t be humble without being transparent and living a life of integrity. It is vital to take responsibility for one’s actions, regardless if they are good or bad, misinformed, or misjudgments… just take ownership of them. I do not blame others, point fingers, or avoid tough questions. When others are still talking, you will see me executing the plans we have in place, asking questions in order to learn more, apply improvements, and make tough decisions.
Asking questions is not a sign of weakness, it is a desire to identify the root cause of issues, so solutions can be created. We cannot operate a government in “reaction mode” all the time. We need to look at ways to not just fix, but also prevent, issues from occurring. What affects one individual affects us all, one weak link in our community weakens us all. If issues are not addressed, they become worse. Merely reacting to issues causes reactive solutions; such as raising taxes, outrageous parking fees, cutting off services, or lack of privilege to be free in our own neighborhoods. Quality Preventative Leadership includes maintaining services, cutting unnecessary spending, and reducing the number of unnecessary laws that need not be enforced in the first place. Our community can come together and solve these issues by asking the right questions, to all the people involved, not just those with the loudest voices. I’m here to listen, learn and serve District 5 as best I can.
