To the residents of Warwick:
Since I declared my candidacy for Mayor back in June, I have been encouraged and humbled by the outpouring of support from Republicans, Democrats, moderates and independent voters. I embarked on this challenge because I see so much potential for the City of Warwick and feel strongly that we need an energetic visionary and consensus builder to get Warwick moving. I feel I am that candidate.
It seems there is a lot of stalling in city hall these days. Under-analyzed budgets, delayed developments, a six-month stalemate in funding our schools – it worries me. We need to get going. We need to get people moving – working together to fund sustainable solutions to our challenges and finding the common ground that will ensure stability for our efforts.
I am a people mover! There is nothing that gives me more satisfaction than bringing two or more groups together, whether they are committees, developers, organizations or constituents. It could be for a simple conversation or a formal partnership, but this is how we accomplish, how we build, how we grow.
The people of Warwick deserve leadership with the courage and know-how to work with varying groups and special interests, and the demeanor to bring them together to find solutions that benefit all involved. They deserve leadership with integrity and with a track record of successful results. My go to formula in getting things done is people moving – in building coalitions and collaborating. I am a builder and a mover who wants a Warwick that thrives with a responsible fiscal agenda, a robust economy, a flourishing school system, thoughtful programs for healthy aging, and a proud sense of community.
Let’s get people moving in celebration of Warwick’s reputation as a vibrant, innovative, desirable place to live and work, raise a family and retire, go to school and grow a business.
For 26 years the voters of Warwick have wisely fashioned a system of checks and balances by voting for a Republican Mayor to balance the largely Democratic controlled City Council. You have chosen to maintain this balance because it ensures appropriate accountability in your elected officials and it acts as a safeguard for your hard-earned tax dollars. People tell me that I have the right vision, experiences and temperament to be the next Mayor of Warwick. I have a clear plan to build up Warwick’s infrastructure, city services, education system, City Center development, and neighborhoods.
I humbly ask for your vote today and thank you for your consideration.
