FUTURE FOCUSED PLAN
Ross believes that if we want a city that will attract new residents and retain our existing population we must think differently about our future. Ross believes we must have a plan for our budget and goals that are measurable if we want to continue to progress. Knowing where you want to go is one thing, having a road map to get you there is another.
Ross believes the health and progress of any city begins with education. Ross will be an advocate for our public schools. Ross believes we need a new perspective from city leadership on partnering with our teachers, administrators, and students to improve our public school system. Better schools = a better city.
EFFECTIVE CREATIVE SOLUTIONS
Just because it has always been done that way does not mean it should continue to be done that way. Ross will work with the newly elected mayor, city council, city employees, and city residents to bring new ideas to the table. By implementing technology and working together towards creative solutions we can increase the efficiency of city services, saving money, and creating a better experience for city residents.
