Please list your top three priorities if you are elected to the office you're seeking. You may use up to 50 words per priority. Longer items will be edited to meet the word limit:
- We have more than three priorities that we need to focus on, however I will address three which I feel are the most important.
- Job creation and economic development would be one of the priorities for me as Mayor. With the loss of over 600 jobs in Riverbank over the last year, it will be imperative to look at how we can expand job growth specifically at the Army Ammunition Industrial Site.
- Another priority would be to ensure we have adequate everyday living resources to ensure the quality of life for all our residents such as water and sewer, public safety and fire protection. We need to be able to meet these basic needs for all our citizens.
- Another priority would have to be the completion of our downtown improvement project. The beautification and restoration of the downtown area will become a hub for increased entrepreneurship opportunities, public and private collaboration, increased tax revenues and a regional entertainment venue for generations to come.
