Dear Loveland Voters,
We can stay the course with the current representation that we have, or we can decide that we want new faces, perspectives, and ideas.
I believe that we need to get this city back on track, and I want to be one of those new faces. I pledge to work towards creating a spirit of cooperation, collaboration and teamwork. I will also work towards holding the city administration accountable for their actions, and make sure that their actions are in the best interest of our city.
With my private sector background, I have experience in building teams that are working towards the same goals. I believe that is critical to the success of Loveland, and something that is lacking today. This would be one of my first priorities.
I have experience in budget planning and implementation. We need to increase our revenue stream by attracting new businesses to Loveland, and subsequently increase the amount of jobs that are available to our citizens. We also need to work closer with small businesses, and look to fill the vacant store fronts that we have on Loveland-Madeira road. We also need to look for additional support from our local businesses in sponsoring public events, resulting in less expense to the city. I think that the recent “Monster Crawl” was a perfect example of how we can work together.
Loveland Station, or “River Trail Flats” as it soon could be named, is a development that we need to watch closely. I think that we should make sure that the taxpayers of our city are the main priority being considered whenever decisions are made. I would support further traffic studies to make sure that we have the infrastructure in place to support the planned housing aspect of the development. We will need more parking, and the traffic flow will be critical to its success.
Ohio Magazine recently rated Loveland as one of “Ohio’s Best Hometowns”. The current City Council wants to take credit for that, however I think that it’s the citizens and businesses in this city that made that possible. Loveland is a great place to live, and we can make it better. Your vote on November 5th will decide what Loveland will look like for future generations. I’d appreciate your vote and support as we move this city forward.
