To be successful, our City must support diversity and promote an open and inclusive government. As Mayor, I will repurpose the Office of Community Relations into the Department of Diversity and Inclusion and expand its mission to ensure the City’s workforce is inclusive and representative of everyone who lives here and that our community is welcoming of all people.
I believe government works best by making sure all citizens are involved and have a seat at the table, so we must make it easier to participate. With the challenges of work schedules and family commitments, it is often difficult to attend public meetings. As Mayor, I would utilize E‑Participation to receive more feedback and make sure every voice is heard on important issues. I will also work to make sure government data is available to the public, so anyone can access it at any time online.
