I would like to announce that I am now a candidate for the position of Town Council President. I have chosen to run for this office based on the decision recently announced by Council President Gill that he will not be a candidate for a third term.
I applaud President Gill for his work over the past few years. He has brought a calming influence to the Council and Town government. He has instituted new committees and worked tirelessly to ensure a professional level of management from the executive branch of Town government. We can all be thankful for his service to the Town in his recent role.
My desire to run for this office is help further the goals, programs and directions that I have promoted over the past three and a half years on the Council. I am proud of the following programs and ideals I have helped to support. In my time on the board I am glad that I have worked on the following:
Tree replacement as a line item the budget,
Working to keep the citizens informed on the new FEMA maps,
Promoting a deeper level of commitment in the schools to KHAN Academy for students,
Proposing the purchase of Chrome Books,
Working to promote Parenting Programs
Promoting Economic Development through the MAPC
OFFICE 365 for the Town
Video capabilities at meetings
Digital Document Program
Support of the Citizen Committee Process
Support for a Town wide social Worker
Vocal Support for a Casino Deal that didn’t put the Town in jeopardy and would have provided $2,000,000.00 annually.
