Janet's Message to Voters
We are emerging from the most difficult time period that many of us have ever faced. Our community’s recovery is still at risk. As we shift our focus from the health crisis to an economic crisis, we will also be dealing with an underlying crisis of fear and mistrust.
To achieve our vision of a thriving city where every citizen, family, and neighborhood can succeed, our government must:
Prioritize the cost-effective, equitable and comprehensive delivery of basic services, including police, fire, water, sewer, garbage, and street maintenance;
Support our existing businesses; and
Unite our community and inspire volunteerism and participation by business and non-profit organizations in working with government to address poverty.
I have successfully led business, government, and charitable organizations. My commitment to our community has been demonstrated through my volunteer work for over 30 years. I understand that some of our problems should be solved by government action, but government alone cannot address all of our problems.
I am running to be your next Mayor because I love this community and I have the knowledge, experience, and personality to lead our city through crisis.
As you get to know me better during the course of my campaign and as I listen and learn more about the priorities for our city, I hope I will earn your trust and your vote.
