Commit to transparency within City government.

How our money is spent should be readily available to us, in easily understood language.

Residents should be able to actively participate in city government. Greater use could be made of the city’s Commissions to research, report and make recommendations on issues within their specific area of oversight to the City Council.

I support continuing online access to City Council and Planning Commission meetings. It allows residents to participate from their homes or on-the-go using mobile devices. Transparency is a vital component of good government and strong communities. It promotes accountability. Sharing crucial information with the community and making this information quick and easy to find builds trust and demonstrates integrity.
