Braham 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 was asked to run for Mayor by business owners and residents because I believe in transparency and fiscal responsibility. Our government leaders should be making government accessible for everyone so the public can participate and be informed. Our government leaders should also understand basic budgeting concepts and planning a government budget that is sustainable and supports future growth of the City. Residents are tired of local elected officials that only serve their self interests instead of representing their constituents.
Balance the current budget and start planning a future budget that grows with the City. That includes ensuring departments are operating with realistic expenses and increasing the City's revenue through tax base expansion to support growth/increased operating costs. We should also be putting money aside for future infrastructure needs above and beyond our budget to reduce the future tax burden. This correlates to the survey responses I received from residents listing finances as priority.
Working with and encouraging our outstanding Police Chief to think outside the box and address community concerns. Creating new city ordinances rated last on my survey of what matters most to residents, so providing accessibility for residents to voice public safety concerns to their City. Then removing barriers for the Police Department to seek creative ways to address those concerns through other means than making new ordinances. Starting with enforcing the ones already in place.
