Our city government seems hellbent on spending your tax dollars and has no problem increasing your taxes for their pet projects. It is time for that to end. I will stand with the people against tax increases.
Our sheriff is tough on crime but he needs our city's support to stay ahead of it. With an ever increasing population comes the need for increased law enforcement and I will vote to make sure we stay ahead of the curve.
Palm Coast needs diversified economic development utilizing a streamlined business friendly approach. We need to support our local businesses and create a positive atmosphere that attracts good companies to come here.
In a time of a down turning economy when we have to tighten our belt to survive, our leaders need to make sure the city does the same thing. I will look for ways to reduce costs while maintaining the high standards of our community. Currently 92% of the City's revenue is from private residents and only 8% is from business. This must change so that we can take the tax burden off of the backs of the people.
We have a large and growing population of senior citizens. Our city lacks resources and outreach programs to help them. I will reach out to various senior oriented organizations to make sure we have programs, resources and guidance available.
I fully support our Constitution and the chain on government that it provides. As a member of the NRA, I will stand up and be a voice for our city to ensure we not only protect our sacred 2nd amendment but that we stand strong for all amendments.
