In order to attract new business or expand existing, we need a combination of things to occur.
1) Lower taxes.
2) Lower water/sewer taxes.
3) Good highway / road system.
4) Create smarter and more business friendly zoning without damaging the neighborhood structure.
5) Work closely with the community and state colleges to offer training that meets the needs of the incoming industries. (Honda Jet, HAECO, etc.)
6) Businesslike demeanor at our City Council meetings. These are always used as a part of any company's due diligence when they consider relocating or expanding.
Having been in business and government throughout my career, I am familiar with business processes and I am qualified to oversee the business of the City.
