The biggest problem in town is ______, and I plan to do this about it:
I firmly believe that infrastructure is our most pressing challenge facing the city as evidenced by the need to address flooding issues, repair sidewalks and update roads. I will work with the board of directors, the public works department and the town planner to identify these areas and implement a plan to complete the work on time. The development of a new center for the elderly is long overdue and is a priority as well as the construction of a public security complex that will accommodate the police force and the growing needs of our community. I will be working with the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Finance on these two initiatives.
Critical differences between me and my opponents:
I will listen to the needs of our residents, identify areas for improvement and make informed decisions that will benefit the community. I will also encourage positive and healthy relationships between board members, commission and council members, and city residents to ensure that we can achieve our mutually beneficial goals for the people of Windsor. Locks.
Throughout my life, my priority has been to support and advocate for the needs of others, whether at work or in the community. Early in my career, I was a shop steward for the Teamsters union and advocated for workplace safety, improved working conditions, and solved many issues raised by our workers. As an operations professional in the transportation industry, I have trained other team members on airline safety and security across the country in addition to ensuring our passengers have a positive experience. . For many years, I have volunteered with the Lions club WL ambulance as a medical response technician and currently volunteer on two patient advisory committees focused on prostate cancer awareness. I co-founded the WL Men’s Softball League in the late 1970s and worked with the city and members of the small business community which was critical to the league’s success. As a member of the Selectmen Board of Directors, I am committed to listening to the needs of our residents, providing a safe and welcoming community, and working together towards a common vision and goal.
In summary, the issues that I will focus on our infrastructure, the development and updating of the public security complex, and the creation of a new Senior Center.
