Public Service

While my moral compass shows the direction I must go, it reveals nothing of the world spread before it. Though what I say here I hope for all, we must work within the world as it is. With that said; my father was a first responder. So too my uncle. Many in my family served our nation in arms. My gratitude for self-sacrifice is marrow deep. I strongly feel those serving our City should be afforded every privilege we can offer. We owe them — our first responders, our educators, our mechanics, our case workers, our lawyers, our bureaucrats, and so on. I loathe the thought of any public servant commuting to the City they serve. In addition to ensuring our public servants are handsomely compensated, they must receive ongoing support in training & career development. It serves our interests they are the best they can be. We must ensure their access to quality housing opportunities, including stipends or preferential and subsidized home loans, and their children must have access to quality schools. Our ongoing efforts at relieving unique stresses & burdens arising from public service includes child care, recreation, mental healthcare, and other services. The more we do for these people, the better talent we will surely attract to our City, while motivating our current residents to choose serving the City they love. The more our public servants choose residing in our City, the more connected to us they will be, and the more connected to them we will be — as our neighbor, customer, and friend. As Supervisor, I will partner with those representing our public employees, seeking & ensuring we serve them as well as they serve us.
