There are many issues, concerns and areas for improvement. QUALITY OF LIFE is probably the broadest topic any candidate faces and the most difficult to define. To me, and many of the city residents, this means finding a “home.” A “home” is a place where you feel safe, can raise a family, and prosper. I have always felt strongly that our quality of life in central NY is excellent but that may not be a sentiment shared by everyone. The key to improving quality of life lies within many aspects of my platform. Safe neighborhoods, good schools, a competitive tax rate, quality housing, access to essential city services and great communication and collaboration. By acting on the various issues within my platform I will help build a strong quality of life for all city residents and use that to attract even more people to this great city.
