Note about fiscal responsibility
Fiscal responsibility is not mentioned by too many candidates. Fiscal responsibility is not about providing the minimum for our city. I want a first-class city with amenities and character appealing to all ages and cultures. To achieve and sustain this vision, we must be proper stewards of our financial resources and make the right choices to avoid wasting taxpayer dollars on bad investments. We must identify our priorities and long-term requirements first, before we shift the conversation to affordability and funding. This allows us to assess the right balance of taxes and investments our citizens value.
