The role of city government is to provide residents the best possible environment for creation of individual, social and economic prosperity. To accomplish this the City must:

• Revise its tax structure to retain existing businesses and attract new commercial
investment.
A quick survey of its many vacant and dilapidated leaseholds, shows the City to be an
inefficient, ineffective land-lord.

• City controlled lands not otherwise used for delivery of services (i.e. Facilities and
Transportation), should be measured against the 2016 Comprehensive Plan and
commercially sold, especially if no clearly specified development plan for the property
exists.
While some City leaseholders who have done business from the same location for many years are not allowed to purchase the land under their building; other newer leaseholders have been allowed to purchase city property, sometimes adjacent to those businesses who have been denied the same opportunity.

• Opportunity for prosperity should be available to all Kenai residents and business
owners. Cronyism and side-dealing must end.

Just as a rising-tide raises all boats, so does an improved business environment raise the individual, social and economic opportunities for all.

When elected to the Kenai City Council I will fight for a more creative, transparent, friendlier City Hall.

Neighborhood buffer zones should be maintained, not developed.

As a Candidate for a Kenai City Council position, I believe it is important for each of us to be involved somehow in our government to keep ourselves and the people around us informed. Thereby, those people might be inspired to become equally informed and involved themselves.

Involvement in the government in Washington seems impossible, but since all government is local: City Councils and Commissions and Service Area Boards are a good place to start.

There are several issues in the City of Kenai that might bear a better understanding:
1. The policy of sale vs. lese for sale of airport property;
2. Ways to promote growth of our business community;
3. Zoning for previously nonexistent easements; and
4. Park with theatre construction and an eroding bluff nearby.

As President Ronald Reagan said,

 Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t
pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and
handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years
telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United
States where men were free.
