MY priorities are not relevant. I do not have a personal agenda.

We have an official community plan, We have had strategy sessions. We have had, and continue to get input from the public , whether it be individuals, organizations or simply groups of interested citizens.

As a council, our first priority should be to listen, and determine the  benefits and drawbacks of any project, whether this project is as simple as filling potholes or as major as funding an underpass.

In short, my priorities come from the grass roots up not vice versa.
