It has been an honor to serve the great people of the Palo Verde District as your Peoria City Councilman over the past 8 years. Our community is a great place to live, work, and enjoy and it is because of the people that care about strengthening our neighborhoods. Since being elected, I have strived to protect our quality of life, keep our neighborhoods safe, promote smart economic development and ensure that Palo Verde has a voice that represents the people, not special interest groups.
You have my word that I will continue to work for the residents of Palo Verde and improving our quality of life.
I believe in strong fiscal management and policies. Peoria currently has one of the most admired fiscal policies anywhere in the country and was just recently rewarded with a Aaa bond rating from Moodys; the highest rating possible. This resulted in the lowest interest rates on bonds in over 20 years. I also believe very strongly in supporting the health and safety services provided to our citizens. As a result of strong fiscal management and outperforming the city's revenue budget, we were able to increase funding to our police and fire by almost $3M dollars this year. We will continue to make Peoria a safe place to live, work, and enjoy.
