TROY | TRUE | TOGETHER
TROY – Troy is an exceptional city! We are known for our strong and vibrant economy with solid business growth that we need, business-friendly policies and our AAA bond rating, and we are just as well known for our beautiful subdivisions, quiet residential streets, parks and green space. With Police and Fire Departments second to none, and nationally ranked schools, Troy is the best place to live, work, and play! I have worked hard for you as a member of City Council to maintain this by listening to both Troy’s residents and its businesses and finding the right balance between sometimes competing interests. As your Mayor, I will make sure we work responsibly to move our city forward, without losing that very special essence of what Troy is and always has been.
TRUE – We all know what a positive experience it is to live in our great city, and yet there exists a negative cloud over Troy because of our disgraced former City Manager and the “culture of complicity” that enabled him and hurt our city. As a member of City Council and as Mayor Pro Tem, I have fought for you to increase transparency, against great political pressure, to ensure that we get to the root of these issues, so that history will not repeat itself and we can move forward in an open, honest, healthy and respectful way. As your Mayor, I will create a fresh start with a new style of leadership and will continue to fight for transparency. I will lead a renewed focus on ethics so that we can re-build trust in our great City, and once again, be the positive city that we all can be proud of!
TOGETHER – Our Troy community and our neighbors are our best and strongest asset. When we collaborate, come together, and really listen to each other, we can accomplish anything. As your Mayor, I will set the right tone for our city by listening to you and respecting all voices, recognizing our great diversity, and governing with the integrity and decorum we deserve, as I have proven to do as your council member and Mayor Pro Tem. Together, we will keep what is so wonderful about Troy; Together we will repair where our city has gone wrong; and only Together will we move forward with respect and integrity!
