Position Statement

Dear Highland Neighbor,

I’ve appreciated meeting with many of you over the past few months. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to be involved in our city and in the election process.

I’ve been asked to share my position on the following three issues: Sunday Closing, Property Taxes & the Toscana Development.

Sunday Closing Ordinance

This question was addressed in 2012 when voters decided to continue the Sunday closing ordinance. I feel that elected officials have an obligation to honor that democratic process. I will defend and support that vote. Should a majority of citizens want to re-address this issue in the future, it must be voted on by the entire city of Highland.

Property Taxes

As a CPA, I realize we have some serious financial concerns in the city and need to address essential and non-essential amenities. I will involve residents to determine what amenities are important and eliminate those that are not. As the Chairman of the Open Space Committee, small portions of city-owned properties have been identified that can be sold to adjacent home owners. The money raised could be used to reconcile revenue and amenities. If elected to the City Council, I pledge to carefully evaluate every option to help align Highland’s revenue and amenities.  In addition, I will aggressively look for alternative funding sources that do NOT include raising taxes. I want to make our city a great place to live while keeping our property taxes low.

Toscana Development

I had nothing to do with the Toscana development and I’m anxious to work with ALL residents to address their concerns and find solutions.

I encourage you to make your voice heard and vote in the Highland City Council race. I hope I’ve earned your vote of support. With your help, we can make Highland a better place to live.
