City of Residence: Huber Heights, Ohio
Party Affiliation: Libertarian
Office Sought: Huber Height City Council Ward 3
Why should you be elected?
If elected, I will be better able to continue to bring transparency to City Hall. I will have a larger voice to ask questions at council meetings and to ask the questions people have brought to me.
Top Three Priorities:
I have two focus areas: make the Huber Heights city government more transparent, and listen to the people.
To make the government more transparent, I am currently looking to see what the biggest and most asked questions people have. For instance, a common public records request is for emails. I think, then, that emails should be available for anyone to search through – perhaps through a public mailing list (which is often used in open source software projects).
As far as listening, I don’t believe someone should have to make it to a Council Meeting to have their voice heard. If they can make it to a Council Meeting, that’s great, but some people work evenings. Or they have to take care of family. Just because someone can’t make it to a Council Meeting doesn’t mean they should be ignored.
