To achieve this vision requires an active strategy for bridging the present to the future. It must be an on-going process that is fluid and dynamic, not static. We must continually review and measure it against our city's changing needs to ensure that it is on-target and guiding relevant decisions.
Effective strategy requires strong leadership. Our city's vision can only be achieved with city leaders who listen to all-not just to some-of its citizens. Milton requires leaders who are skilled at identifying problems, and who have the capability of initiating the type of change that bridges present reality to our vision for the future. Failure to respond to and adapt to our city's needs leads to a loss of connection to our community. Elected officials who cannot adapt, who are one-sided and inflexible, risk failure at the expense of our city.
My vision for Milton is to maintain and enhance our wonderful rural environment within a unified city where people of diverse perspectives live cohesively and without rancor. I want to see our city respected by other cities and by the State of Georgia. My vision of the future includes wonderful parks, equestrian trails and pedestrian walkways as part of a prosperous city with adequate revenue sources to support the services our citizens want and deserve.
