What are the biggest issues facing your city and how do you plan to address them?
Land use issues always seem to be high on the list. It doesn't matter what type of use or where it is in the city, land use comes charged with high emotion, anxiety, or frustration. Each situation whether it be a development, public open space, zoning, or what you can or cannot do with your land, must be carefully addressed by following city codes and ordinances. I spend a great deal of time on each issue in order to make decisions that help protect property rights and keep peace and order in the community. (at least that is my objective)
