Bryan Frye for Wichita

What issues will you make a top priority for Wichita?

“My top priorities for District 5 & Wichita are taking better care of its basic needs – water, streets, public safety. According to long-term projections, District 5 will continue to experience strong growth and development. We have to be ready, proactive and responsible in managing the increases in people, traffic & demand. We must have clear priorities and funding for these infrastructure needs.”

How do you specifically plan to address the city’s aging infrastructure — including the aging water system that recently required $600,000+ in improvements to address a large leak? How do you propose paying for the needed improvements?

“It begins with the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and making sure the dollars are prioritized correctly. Focus on fixing the needs before tackling the wants.

The Wichita area has seen a variety of layoffs, including thousands from aviation in the last few years. What is your specific plan to bring more jobs to Wichita and improve the economy?
“Focus efforts on innovation and diversification for start-ups, entrepreneurs and growing businesses. Concentrate on the companies already here and emerging. Grow our existing businesses before we recruit outside companies who may be competitors. At its best, the city works to create an environment in which all firms have a chance to thrive. Reduce taxes for all companies by growing the tax base. Limiting the tax burden for start-ups and growing businesses improves their chances of succeeding and continued expansion.”
What specific city issue do you think deserves your immediate attention and how to you plan to address it?
“Taking better care of our infrastructure needs. This requires top priority for budget and planning.”
