We must be business friendly. Across western Shawnee, we must encourage and foster smart commercial and residential development. I will work with the Council and anyone interested in bringing more business and retail options to our area.
We must ensure that the city does everything possible to keep Shawnee a welcoming, accessible, and inclusive community.
National politics has become far too ugly and divisive. That's not who we are in western Shawnee. From day one, I have worked with council members, community leaders and citizens across the spectrum to solve problems and improve our lives and our neighborhoods. I want to sit down, talk through issues and see where we can reach common ground. Send me a message, let's talk!
We choose to live in Shawnee because of our incredible schools and parks, safe neighborhoods, and close-knit sense of community. I am sensitive to the overall tax burden we all bear. We must continue efforts to grow our tax base with new commercial and residential development. I will not advocate or vote for anything that would cause a reduction in vital city services such as police, fire or public works.
The city should enhance its focus on environmental sustainability. The investment grade facility audit completed in 2018 was a good start. I will encourage the city to implement sustainable solutions wherever feasible.
