While our city management has achieved great progress in some areas, we could certainly improve in others, specifically
- Balance the investments in Downtown and Overlake with the infrastructure needs of other neighborhoods
- Work towards responsible budgeting that would allow financing such capital investments as community pool without bonds
- Include the residents in land use development planning so that the new developments serve the whole community
- Support small local business through the rapid urban growth
Many of us in Redmond feel that way, and as your Councilmember, I shall make sure that these issues are made a priority for our city in the near future.
