What are your priorities for your community?
My main focus would be to maintain a better oversite on capital expenditures and fund distributions from federal and state levels. The Canfield Community should have a greater input and voice as to how their tax dollars are spent. I would strongly advocate for the redirection of funds that would benefit the Citizens of Canfield and our Community as a whole.
What policies, if any, will you support to promote diversity and inclusion in your community?
The implementation of community input and term limits would go a long way in bringing about diversity and an influx of new and innovative ideas that can help the City of Canfield grow and prosper now and into the future.
