There are many priorities that need to be worked on, but the number-one for me is still the local economy.
A full review is needed to measure where we are economically to where we want to be.
Many on council look to the proposed downtown community college as a solution to most of the economic issues that are present. The college would be a good addition when, and if, it is built. However an actionable plan for attracting businesses that we want in the community that will create more employment opportunities is needed now. This requires focus and leadership.
