We all have less money in our pockets than a few years ago. My mother taught me that it's not how much money you have it's what you do with what you have that is more important. I will use my mother's advice and my 25 years of financial management background to make sure your tax dollars are not wasted. I believe our best days are still ahead of us if we use our resources properly. I will use my community development experience to work with small and large businesses to help bring jobs for our citizens and revenues to our tax base. I will support Police and Firefighters to insure you and your children can live in safe crime free neighborhoods. Repairing your roads is a part of my agenda in serving the community. In short getting back to basics is my goal for Richmond.
