Position Papers
I'm calling for responsible and truly supervised growth and an end to the "sardine syndrome" of development being forced upon us by the housing industry and politicians who salivate at the prospects of more tax revenues.
I believe in honesty and openness in a City Government answerable solely to the people. I support preservation of the environment and would like to see campaign finance reform to limit contributions and expenditures in City elections.
