"This is a pivotal moment in our city’s history. Over the next several years, our city council will be making many important decisions that will have longstanding effects on our city’s future. While growth is inevitable, I, like the majority of Milton’s citizens, believe that we have a collective responsibility to preserve Milton’s small town character and distinctive heritage by ensuring responsible growth and land use, efficient community services, and fiscal responsibility and accountability. As your councilman, I will listen to your interests and concerns and make decisions based on the will of the majority. I will work to build consensus on council and in the community, and I will make decisions that preserve our city’s unique char acteristics. I would greatly appreciate your support in this important election."
