Everything we care about, every service that makes our City strong – schools, parks, libraries, police & fire protection, roads and transit – these all depend on sound financial planning behind the scenes. It’s not sexy, but it has to be done right.
Unlike some, I believe that government can improve people’s lives. Therefore, we must continue to demonstrate that we can balance the budget and spend public dollars wisely. These are the values that I have promoted these past four years, and is why I have decided to run for a second term on our city’s Board of Estimate and Taxation.
My progressive “people first” values, my experience with municipal finance, and my ability to collaborate respectfully have been the right background for this position. I have promoted openness, transparency, fairness and accountability. As citizens of Minneapolis we must work to get the most value for our tax dollars.
These common sense values are the foundation on which to build progressive budgets and a great city. I look forward to working with you for the next four years. Thank you for your support.
