What issues will you make a top priority for Wichita?

“A true open Wichita that shows the tax payers where all money is spent and that there will be no more added debt or tax give always.”

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?

“We will have to find a priority of items that need to be met immediately. Then put together a real business plan that will allow us to meet the needs of our aging infrastructure to be brought up to date. We have to find the answers in side of Wichita and grow together as a city that believes in itself again.” 

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?

“We need to as a city to get out of the way of small businesses, including people who want to start their own food trucks, second-hand stores, construction businesses. These are the types of jobs that will drive any economy.”

What specific city issue do you think deserves your immediate attention and how to you plan to address it?
“There will be no more “free lunches” with tax payers dollars. We have to be good stewards with what we have been entrusted with as a public servant. Full disclosure with every level of government has to be the daily practice of off elected officials and employees of the tax payers. The “City of Wichita” need to bring pride and honor to the actions. The people of Wichita are watching and they want men that will own up to their actions and decisions on a daily basis.”
