For 16 years, I have committed my life and my energy to making Lincoln a better place to live.
We have improved Lincoln’s revenue per capita (without new taxes) in order to provide better services, added a full-time fire service, and most importantly, we have kept fees low for our citizens.
Over the next few years, we have some projects which will help Lincoln refocus to becoming the city we want for our community such as:
The Regional Sewer Project – Will lead to lower long-term rates for our citizens while cleaning up local creeks and ravines, returning them to natural productivity. I have been negotiating these agreements with Auburn and Placer County representatives where I have built necessary relationships.
Placer County Conservation Plan – The conservation plan is an agreement that will limit regulation of businesses while setting aside key open space areas. I have been working with the county and state and federal agencies to protect Lincoln and am asking for your confidence to finish the job I have started.
Highway 65 Bypass (Downtown) – We have our downtown back after over 40 years as a thoroughfare. We need to focus on bringing our business community together to develop greater revenue streams for improvement of the downtown, which ultimately benefits the entire community.
Highway 65 (Airport) – With the development of Highway 65, the council finally has the ability to attract key large businesses to the airport and to west Lincoln. The airport has long been a dormant gem. The airport will now benefit from a direct route, which is easy for trucks to move to and from the freeway.
Now is the time for experienced leadership, not hyperbole and sound bites. Protect public safety. Vote for a positive vision for Lincoln. Vote Short for Council on Nov. 6.
