I am a community advocate that believes in giving back to the community. At this time, I know I can impact my city, for the better, by being a member of the city council. My goal is to hold the line on debt and taxes while making sure the residents receive open, honest, and available representation.
1. Reasonable and stable property tax 2. Ensuring residents receive good value for their tax dollars 3. Maintain public safety and our public infrastructure

Our taxes have grown year over year. My own experience is that they grew 45% since 2005 and 7% in the last year. It's time to hold the line on debt and taxes and ensure the residents are receiving the best value for their tax dollar. Making sure residents feel safe and are safe helps a community thrive.
We in Shakopee are blessed with wonderful law enforcement. They are active in the community, visible, and exemplify what it means to protect and serve. One of my priorities is to ensure that standing up for our first responders continues to be a city priority and that they are always provided with the resources and support they need to do their jobs.
In my professional capacity, I have worked with county, city, and township level governments all throughout Minnesota. I have seen what works well and I have seen what has not. I aim to bring everything I have learned to the Shakopee City Council. In the campaign, I have been the most accessible candidate. I want Shakopeeans to know their local elected officials and feel comfortable expressing their concerns while knowing they will be heard. If elected, I will be regularly available in public spaces for Shakopee residents to engage with. I want residents to express their concerns and share their vision for a better future. That is the duty of a locally elected representative.
Community Safety/Crime Prevention: Fortunately, we in Shakopee are current experiencing decreasing crime rates. I look to continue this by working with the Sheriff's Office by sharing resources.

Financial Security: having a City Council that acknowledges these stressful financial times we are having is paramount. Tax policies should be responsible.

Supporting Shakopee Businesses: We can't deter investment into Shakopee like we have seen this year. We have to let businesses grow and thrive.
A safe community starts at home. I admire what the Shakopee Police Department has accomplished with their community engagement programs. I aim to strengthen these programs and make them more known throughout our community to increase involvement. Creating a strong sense of community and togetherness also deters potential criminal activity. It will be important to prop up our existing community events and develop more!

Listening to citizens seems to be relatively rare in Shakopee.

I conducted a poll regarding the THC/vape product ban that was introduced in Shakopee by the city council before it was passed and 88% of those polled were against the ban.

The city decided to pass it anyway.

The citizens were not at all convinced by arguments that it was for the safety of children. instead it was seen as another attempt to control what the lawful public can and cannot do with their money. Further, Shakopee businesses were left without income from these products, undoubtedly losing other sales in the process.

This disconnect from reality is common and I am the candidate to bridge the gap and represent the people. Vote Osborn.
Safety is most important. Without safety and security everything else means nothing. Without it we cannot thrive and prosper so it should be the focus above all else.

Next is opportunity. Opportunity for all to excel is the American dream. By incentivizing work and prosperity, the people and the community are all enriched.

Finally, responsibility. As a city, we need to acknowledge and address our shortcomings so we can truly be the best we can be.
By communicating with local police, neighborhood watches, and concerned citizens we can keep the community safe. One problem, however, is the stigmatization of reporting to the authorities, especially of specific groups. We cannot be giving groups privilege over others and we must have the strength to report any and all crimes and potential crimes regardless of the perceptions of those more concerned with separating us in groups than public safety.
