I’ll work with the council to pass a budget on time, balanced, and fiscally responsible. Ensuring that all city services are completely funded and supported.
I’ll be a guard dog for city spending and advocate for development that directly helps the inner city. Jobs are needed in Utica. I’ll be watching and promoting that jobs initiative at every turn.
- Work to position Utica as a metropolitan area for the Mohawk Valley. Increasing the economic potential of Utica in collaboration with neighboring towns.
- Shift economic development policy toward Innovation and cooperatives. No longer can we wait on outside developers alone to be the economic catalyst for Utica. We have to build a city development strategy that is more self sustaining utilizing our social capital in the Mohawk Valley. Yet, is competitive and incentives companies to come into the area.
