Opening up to the reason of my vote is this; I believe our current elected officials have done an excellent job with the city of Buffalo over the last couple decades. But the truth of the matter is we have got a ways to go to keep in touch with our expanding community and promote new growth that will bring in a sustainable climate for new and existing businesses. I feel that Brad Nauman would best fill the position of Mayor of Buffalo, on my own behave and taking a chance will re-post his vision statement:
A Vision for a city is a combination of where we are and where we can be in the future. It helps define the destination and from there, plans are formulated as to how we are going to get there.
When trying to articulate a vision for a City, I believe that the vision can begin with the leader (Mayor) but that it needs to include input from more than one person. One of my plans if I am elected Mayor is to lead a visioning exercise that must include the involvement of our citizens, our city representatives, our county representatives, and even representatives of our state.
Following is my Vision statement which will serve as our starting point:
"I have lived in Buffalo for 26 years and raised a family here. My family and I have chosen to live in Buffalo for the same reasons that you do - Buffalo provides us with a great quality of life.
My personal vision for Buffalo: Buffalo is an increasingly diverse city that remembers its history, but welcomes the future. It is a city where people choose to live, work, and play and it is a city where people get involved in decision making through their participation in meetings, organizations, and other civic involvement.
We will maintain a vital downtown area, a highway business district, and neighborhoods that mix residences, green spaces, and the appropriate services to support the needs of our citizens. We will continue to aggressively support the creation and maintenance of jobs by supporting our existing businesses and by attracting new businesses of all kinds to Buffalo.
We will use technology to enhance productivity and public safety, and looking to the future, creates opportunities to further connect our citizens to vital services such as education and healthcare.
We will be a city government that maintains conservative fiscal policies and strives to enhance quality of life by keeping our tax levy as low as we can"
