The most important issue in this election: Our schools, teachers, policemen, firemen, beaches, parks, businesses and arts. The RTM must ensure budgets, ordinances and expenditures are the result of adequate due diligence into issues surrounding CMS, specifically value our educators and first responders, increase accessibility to all town amenities, and focus on retaining and attracting businesses.
Other issues: Keeping constituents informed. The state of our schools, endless traffic, Cribari Bridge, senior housing, Saugatuck TOD, 8-30g- it is the RTMs responsibility to inform residents on topics that can impact daily life. We need transparency, open communication and stronger engagement on all issues under the RTMs purview.
