I believe I should be the next atlarge Hastings City Council Member because I have the energy and heart to serve our community in public service. Being born and raised in Hastings has made me have a deep rooted love for this town, and its residents. I have volunteered extensively throughout my life, and being on city council is an extension of my desire to help others. I truly believe that local government is the foundation to have a strong community. I want everyone to feel as blessed as I have been to be a part of Hastings. The best work in government is done locally, and I want to be a voice on the council for establishing strong, high standards for government performance. We have a very involved community and I am thrilled to further my involvement by being on city council. I have many priorities if elected to council that you can see below.
Economic growth and development. Local businesses and entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of our community and I will help them thrive in the Vermillion St. Corridor, downtown, and everywhere. Growing and maintaining our local development is what keeps Hastings prospering.
Inclusion. I will work hard to ensure Hastings offers resources, programs, and activities that welcome all residents. I want everyone who works, resides, or visits Hastings to be welcomed and heard.
Tourism. I will work with colleagues and city staff to encourage tourism in Hastings by bolstering our city’s parks and recreation system. This will also help our economic growth and development.
Transportation. Everyone should have the chance to discover the beauty our town has by local transit. I want to reestablish and improve our local transit system so our residents have safe, accessible travel options to our local shops, restaurants, trails, and homes.
Public Safety. Everyone should feel safe and secure in Hastings. Our police, fire, and emergency rescue staff deserve support and transparency.
Staff retention. Hastings has so many great city staff members. Everybody knows it’s hard to keep good staff nowadays, so one of my priorities will be talking to our current staff to make sure their needs are being met.
Fiscal Responsibility. Everything we do within our city has to happen within our budget. We have to make sure we give our taxpayers the best deal.
