Public Safety – Public safety is a top priority. It is important that our police officers, who are protecting our neighborhoods, have the best equipment and training possible.  I will work to maintain current staffing levels at both the Kingwood and Clear Lake substations.  Partnering with area Constables to target crime hot-spots, increase traffic enforcement in our neighborhoods can also help keep our communities safe.  My approach has earned our campaign the endorsement and support of our local police officers.

Economic Development – The key to any city’s financial security is economic development.  While serving as Chairman of the Finance Committee for the Sports Authority, I was successful in attracting high profile events into District E and our City bringing in new economic development.  I want to continue to use my knowledge and success to represent you on Houston City Council.

Flooding & Drainage –The voters approved a ‘drainage fee’ in 2011.  The Mayor has stated the money collected from this fee will be used towards her “worst first” priority list.  A top priority will be to ensure that District E receives funding for our problem flooding and drainage areas.  I will fight at City Hall to ensure that we receive our fair share, and that our local flooding and drainage issues are addressed.

Fiscal Responsibility – The City of Houston continues to grow each year and the burden to deliver public services continues to be stretched to the limit each year.  My private sector management experience, background as a local school board member, and service on the Sports Authority have given me a blueprint on how to make agencies work, even thrive, on fewer tax dollars.  I’m ready to use my experience at City Hall to be sure our government is using our tax dollars wisely.
