East Bethel City Mayor

The role of city mayor can vary from city to city. However, the mayor is usually the head of the city and may represent the city in front of other government bodies. A mayor also usually has a role in proposing a city budget that is approved by the city council. The budget influences the services the city provides to its residents. Mayors sometimes are voting members of city council, and in some cities the mayor is in charge of city council meetings.

I am the best candidate because I have a passion for the city and the residents. I have advocated for the resident’s desires prior to being elected to the city council. I believe in property rights, and this city does not need to micromanage properties. I show respect to every citizen, whether we agree or not. A levy should be used in situations of urgency, not as an automatic part of the budgeting process. I love the rural feel of East Bethel and have a strong desire to maintain this rural feel. Our residents want grocery and dining, not High-density housing. I will do more to promote businesses that are here, such as feature business on social media and in our newsletter. I believe in Common sense leadership,
Modify or eliminate ordinances that do not align with rights of property owners. Prohibit search warrants on residents based on minor violations such as suspicion of no permits. Find more commercial property brokers to find a local grocery store to work with current developers. A grocery store and other retail and dining would be a fantastic fit. Revamp our budgeting process so levies are not an automatic part of the budget and eliminate or reduce more of the fees the city charges for service
As our city grows safety becomes more of a concern. We have an excellent relationship with the Anoka County Police, and I will strive to maintain that relationship. I will promote community safety through publications and neighborhood watches. Increased policing comes with an increased cost, so citizen involvement will be a priority. We can increase the bond between our police, fire and the residents. As a great listener, the residents and I can help to identify and improve safety issues.
