Why Am I Running For Office?
My Stance on the Storm Water Problem:
The absolute first thing I intend to do is roll up my sleeves and dig into this storm water runoff issue. This should have been a work in progress and near completion at this point. Not only have we collected funds awhile ago for this project, but now the EPA is filing a lawsuit against us, and Pueblo is also seeking legal action. In my mind, this is the most serious of issues that needs attention.
This stormwater issue is just not easy. I’m struggling to get past the notion that this could have been avoided. I know we cannot go back and change the past. We can only move forward and do our best to fix the issues without bleeding the citizens dry.
There is an issue on the ballot that will help a bit with this. It allows the mayor to use the money he has already collected, through taxes, to help pay for this mess. Please ask questions before you make your choice. Regardless of my victory or defeat, I will answer your questions and address your concerns when you have an issue to make a decision on.
We can’t make good decisions if we do not know what is asked of us.
