Our school district is failing us, we are almost last in the nation in education. I believe that if we want our children to receive a world-class education, we must invest in our schools, teachers, and students. Parents play a critical role in their child’s life, and I strongly believe in putting parents first by empowering them to make the best choices for their family. Additionally, supporting local control is imperative if we are going to ensure that our communities are strong not just now but for years to come as well.
As Henderson grows, we must continue to attract a diverse range of sustainable businesses and development to support our growing population seeking to raise their families in safe and secure neighborhoods. Our businesses need to feel supported, which is why I am committed to supporting industry-based efforts to enhance Henderson's competitiveness.
Henderson was voted one of the best places to both raise a family and retire in, I will work every day to ensure that it stays that way for our families. I want to ensure that we maintain our quality of life by keeping taxes down, while supporting local businesses and finding more ways to make life better for all residents.
We owe an immeasurable amount of gratitude to our public safety professionals on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. Henderson is one of the safest cities in Nevada and it is important we give our public safety personnel the tools they need to keep our families safe. I will always support our local and state law enforcement agencies to keep our neighborhoods safe for all Henderson families.
During this difficult economic environment, it is critical as a city that we have a balanced budget so we can continue to invest in our neighborhoods and continue the many positive strides made thus far. We must continue to be committed to fiscal responsibility without additional financial burdens to our community, which allows us to address important issues such as public safety and maintenance. Additionally, it is imperative that we do this by keeping our taxes low – we are currently the lowest in Nevada.
I am committed to keeping Nevada the most veteran and military friendly state in the country. I am proud of my dad for his service during the World War II. I will continue to ensure that our veterans have the representation and voice they have so proudly earned.
