Three Key Issues

1. Create more jobs by attracting more companies

Chandler has many built in advantages that we can market to business owners in other states. Good schools, parks, streets, superior infrastructure, affordable housing, clean and safe neighborhoods and an existing quality workforce. In Arizona, 70% of the people that have a Science or Engineering degree live in the East Valley. We are 30% less to do business in compared to CA, NY, CONN and NJ according to the Milken Institute. We must be more proactive promoting these advantages to business owners around the country, branding ourselves as the place to do business in the Southwest United States. And we must reachout to the businessowners in these other states explaining the benefits of Chandler, Arizona.

2. Safe & Clean neighborhoods

Public safety should always be a priority. I’m proud to be endorsed by public safety and I will work with Fire & Police to assure cost effective, quality performance and response times. We need to take care of our older neighborhoods in Chandler and attract younger families there. Pay special attention to the central & north parts of Chandler. Find quality companies for the vacant space sooner rather than later. The older parts of the city will be a huge priority to me. We also need to finish roadwork for the Southeast Chandler residents, by widening Gilbert and McQueen Road’s south to Riggs.

3. More effective government spending

Chandler is currently a very well run city. We must continue that trend in the future. We must make make sure that the residents, businessowners and taxpayers of Chandler get the most for their money. Keep the local sales taxes and secondary property taxes competitive, while at the same time, we will continue the quality of life we all enjoy. I will be a watchdog for any waste or duplication.
