As Maumee moves forward, we need to be very strategic when expanding and growing.
I support policies that will help develop livable, family friendly neighborhoods in Maumee, where residents can live, work and play.
Maumee is facing another budget deficit, and now more than ever I believe we need to be very responsible when spending tax payer's dollars. By using technology, we can create innovative ways to deliver services more effectively.
I believe that elected officials should work FOR the residents. I value the opinions of the residents, and want to foster an open two-way communication between the City of Maumee and its residents.
Maumee residents deserve a city government that will listen and work for them. While out knocking on doors and talking to residents, I've heard form so many that they either don't know who to call and when they do call they don't receive any response or followup. By implementing a call center, we will ensure:
I believe in the value of hard work, and I want Maumee to focus on creating higher wage jobs, greater worker protections, and more opportunities for entrepreneurship and economic development. Maumee hasn't had a Master Plan since the 70's, and I from working in municipal government I know how important master plans are for zoning and planning and future urban development. That's why I support Clear Vision for Maumee's initiative. Maumee is a land-locked suburb, so we need to be strategic. With community input, a Master Plan can help guide us to:
To become a more family-friendly community, I want to:
Maumee is a great place to live, and I think the City should do more to show off our Maumee pride! We can do this by improving our branding, installing new city signage and our entrance points, beautifying our medians and public property. Investing in these things and more can help improve a Mamuee’s image, and contribute to gains in tourism, economic development and citizen pride.
The immediate needs of the city shouldn’t cause us to forget the crucial priority of sustainability. Cities play a critical role in addressing sustainability. One policy we should investigate is adding composting to Maumee’s residential waste and recycling options. We should also prioritize appropriate sustainability features for new developments, such as solar energy and permeable surfaces.
