Our Issue #2: RESPONSIBLE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

LI2.jpg

You are speaking, I am listening, and I will continue to listen to you. My responsibility as your District 2 Representative is to represent you. I can only do that if I know what issues concern you. I have already learned that you care about how growth and development impact you, your property, and your quality of life. You have told me that you want to have a greater say in what growth is permitted in your community.

I pledge to continue to get your input, and to support any initiative that promotes responsible growth especially in District 2. In order to allow growth to continue responsibly, we must be able to properly resource and manage our waters, critical lands, public schools, public utilities, law enforcement, first responders and healthcare structure to meet the needs of this growing community. We must remain vigilant to issues surrounding climate change, flooding, and sea rise. Transportation and traffic in District 2 are an ongoing and increasing challenge that I will work to address through review and revision of existing plans and studies. I promise to work closely and collaboratively with other municipalities, to conduct due diligence and to hold myself and my colleagues on County Council accountable to you. I have supported previous referendums for rural and critical lands and fully support the recent increase in teacher salaries. All of our students need our support to improve performance and I look forward to working with the Council to support and improve internet service to our rural areas.
