Based on my research and discussion with many Summit voters, I have identified many concerns of my neighbors and friends. As a candidate for public office, these fellow citizens asked if I would relay those concerns. They include:
Why are streets like Blackburn in such poor shape? When will they be repaired?
Does the recent violence at the Shell on River Road merit a review of our safety measures? It seems like it was out of character, but is the City staying vigilant enough?
Are neighbors’ complaints about rampant texting and driving misplaced? Can/should the laws on this be better enforced?
All of those issues are very relevant, and deserve answers.
Others may sit and stay silent, but I pledge never to be a bystander and to stop fighting for improvements in our community.
