It's been a rewarding experience during the last five years to serve as mayor of this great city. We (City Council and City Staff) have worked arduously to stimulate economic growth and development through business retention and new construction.  In conjunction with that, I have been afforded the opportunity to make a difference by building alliances with 'sister cities', stakeholders, state officials, and others to address issues that have retarded growth for so many years. And because of that, we are now positioned to attract businesses that will positively support an increase in the City's sales tax base; a big plus as 'other municipalities' have and are facing budget deficits, WE STAND STRONG!

Let's continue, as a community, to work together by supporting and volunteering on City Boards and Commissions to plan wisely as to how our tax dollars are allocated through strategic and long-range planning initiatives currently underway. As a senior urban planner, I know the importance of all elements complementing each other to realize the success of City programs to benefit its citizens.
