We need to attract the right businesses to our community. Business that attract individuals who share in our community's values and can enhance our quality of life. Companies whose employees want to live in our community and patron our businesses. New companies and local establishments mean economic growth for the city, jobs for our citizens and revenue for our local economy. I am committed to working with our business leaders to strengthen our local economy by recruiting new advanced industries, assisting existing businesses, and creating new diverse employment opportunities for our residents. My goal is to promote job growth and expand the local tax base while still providing a high standard of living for our resident's quality of life.
