My Vision for Milton = Our Citizens' Vision for Milton
Citizen surveys show overwhelming support for our city’s Vision Statement: “Milton is a distinctive community embracing small-town life and heritage while preserving and enhancing our rural character.” Consequently, this Vision Statement serves as the basis for the city’s strategic direction (as outlined in our 2030 comprehensive plan and 2012-2015 strategic plan) and is the cornerstone of my decision making as your council member.
In the past four years, I have gained invaluable experience in finance and budgeting, land use and planning, parks and recreation, public safety, municipal law, and public works. I have also learned to be respectful and effective in a political environment. Through it all, I have remained unbiased and objective in my decision making and unwavering in my commitment to follow through on the priorities I outlined during my 2007 campaign.
As one of seven elected officials who have been entrusted by our citizenry to ensure our city's vision is realized, I take my position very seriously. Realizing our city’s vision has been central to every decision I have made. I remain committed to further realizing the city’s vision and mission in my second term by doing the following:
· Fully staffing our police and fire departments
· Developing our existing parks and acquiring new parkland, if necessary, to provide a comprehensive set of active and passive recreational options for our citizens
· Protecting our rural, equestrian character by –
o Approving growth and development that adheres to our land use policies, zoning ordinance, and standards related to environmental protection, architectural design, and traffic safety, and
o Capitalizing on the uniqueness of our city to build a sense of pride in our community and promote new and existing equestrian-related businesses
· Ensuring the overall financial stability of the city in the short and long term by only approving fiscally conservative annual budgets that ensure a lean government that provides efficient, top quality services to our citizens
In the September 7 edition of this publication, my opponent declared that, “Milton can be a best place to live, work, and play.” I could not disagree with this statement more. We already are the best place to live, work, and play! That is why my family moved to this area and why I have been involved in keeping our community great since moving here in 2005 – first as an HOA president and then as your council member.
Working together and remaining steadfast in our commitment, our Vision can REMAIN a reality for generations to come. Electing experienced, unbiased proven leaders, like me, to our city council will be vital to making this happen, and I stand ready to assist.
I would greatly appreciate your vote on November 8th and consider it an honor to serve you now.
