EXPECT MORE. DO BETTER.
A city that works
Streets and utilities. Public safety. Parks and libraries. Tax-base development. Housing. These core services are critical. When city government doesn’t do these well, no one else does. Let’s expect more. Let’s expect city services that work—and work well.
Drugs. Panhandling. Graffiti. Encampments. Several Downtown buildings and I-35 twice closed by major encampment fires. All contribute to a feeling of being unsafe in our downtown and in too many neighborhoods. As a community, we can—and must—do better.
Culture and attitude matter. We need City Hall to partner with residents, neighborhoods and businesses. We need an attitude of, “Yes, we can do that!” And we need a mayor who can bring people together to find solutions. I can do that. Because I have done that.
