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:

Raising a family of my own, public safety is my number one priority. Our police department is fighting rising gang activity and must have the resources to control this threat and build our reputation for zero tolerance. This brings me to my second priority of fiscal responsibility. We cannot allow excess spending to impact our core operations. We can and will balance the budget by focusing on what is needed rather than wanted. In a recession, it does not behoove us, the citizens of Ripon, to spend $400,000 expanding our skate park for instance. Improving communication across Ripon's City, Fire and School entities is a core part of achieving fiscal soundness. I believe when you bring different perspectives to the table at the development stage, you gain valuable insight and field knowledge and are less likely to make costly mistakes during implementation. Mistakes such as the dangerous roundabout at North Ripon and River roads, at which most accidents involve injuries.
