Issue 1: Protect Mayor-Council Governance

This year the council has been in disarray.  It wouldn’t be wise to give the council additional responsibilities at this time.  The advantage of a mayor is the ability to quickly make decisions.  This keeps an organization such as the city moving forward.  A full-time mayor has the time to delve into the issues and attend regional conferences to improve our regional position. On another note I enjoy being at a community event where the mayor initiates the event.  This makes everybody feel special.  But the voters will decide.  My position is to maintain the current system.
