Position Papers
Economic And Environmental Renewal
By expanding the solar financing district model to proven and affordable environmental investments such as solar thermal(hot water), thermal insulation, energy efficient windows and household appliances we will reduce monthly utility expenses for our residents, reduce our green house gas emissions, and create the green collar jobs economy that will be necessary to float our community through the economic collapse we are entering now. nd environmental crises we face.
Community Oriented City, Decision Making and Policy
Far to often elected officials tell us we don't have the money to pay for the programs and results we need to live better lives. And that is not the truth, it is simply a failure of creativity.
Vacant Store Fronts Suck the life out of our Commercial Districts, and as a blight, waste valuable Tax dollars on Police and Emergency Services.
