LIST OF ISSUES
There are limits to what the City can spend and we must grow responsibly and fairly. We must find ways to increase revenue while eliminating burdensome taxes affecting small businesses and working-class residents. It's extremely important to motivate entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, and merchants to build and invest in our community and ensure that everyone gets a fair shot. Creating innovation will take our City into the future, just as it had in the past.
The building block of success starts and ends at education. Children are the future and we must make sure our school districts are always secure and adequately funded by protecting and up keeping our property values in order for our children to become the leaders and innovators of the future.
Fixing Crumbling Infrastructure
Year after year, we are faced with gridlock over how to improve our roads, parks, and abandoned properties. We must work harder than ever before with the State and Federal government to invest for the long-term. And our community should not endure neighborhood flooding, potholes, or crumbling sidewalks. This spring has made it quite apparent that our drainage and sewer systems should be paid more attention to in the future. Failure to continue to maintain and constantly update our infrastructure has created heartbreak and unnecessary financial burden to our City. It is the responsibility of those on City Council to seek and find solutions. It won't be cheap. It won't be easy. But it must be done! You shouldn't need an ark to live in Allen Park!
