Summary I'm running to protect Harrisburg's small town atmosphere through smart and sustainable growth, while investing in crucial infrastructure, community safety, and recreational facilities. Key Points:
Smartly manage continued growth and infrastructure
Harrisburg has grown tremendously over the past 10 years and continued growth of our area is important to support our community activities which include recreation for our children and families.
Our community has to be thoughtful about our growth and the impact it will have on our area. I aim to protect the small town atmosphere and historical component of our area, while growing our town's features to strengthen our local economy. Listening to the citizens of the area is necessary to understand, plan, and develop strategies to not only advance our area but to make the infrastructure better to support our needs. I will advocate for Smart Growth to create the balance we want.
Harrisburg is rich in farming and agricultural and close to "big city" living. As a town, we have to work to unite our historical farming background with the growth demand. This means creating local business opportunities for our farming community. This will provide newcomers with an understanding of our historical background and rich history. This will create a system of sustainability to pass on to our children.
I love that my children are able to grow up in an area that values the land. I want others to feel the same way when they arrive within our town limits.
