I think it is very important to support your community in any way you can. I'm currently retired after a long career as a Lead Nuclear Machinist at Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant. I recently served 4 years on the District #200 School Board. I have served on the Hastings Public Safety Advisory Commission, 2030 Comprehensive Plan Committee, and Park and Recreation Commission. I have also served on the Hastings Police Reserves for over 25 years.My experience in city politics is varied and I think that gives me a perspective to be open to new ideas while looking back at what has worked in the past. Being retired, but active, gives me time to devote to the citizens of Hastings and be an asset to the Hastings City Council.
Finding new growth in the community by providing an incentive for builders. Looking for new jobs and jobs that pay with benefits. Review the comprehensive 2040 plan to make sure we are on track with the long range goals established in the plan. I plan to promote the community wherever I go and be an enthusiastic spokesperson for Hastings. The role of the city is to search out new business opportunities including industrial and manufacturing companies that will allow the city to grow.
“See something, say something.” Public safety is everyone's job. Building or rebuilding neighborhood watch and adding a ring doorbell directory to assist the police department. The 25 years I volunteered for the Hastings Police Reserves as well as my 6 years on the Public Safety Advisory Commission give me a unique perspective on public safety issues. August 2, National Night Out events are a great way to get to know your neighbors and make your neighborhood stronger.
I would bring a fresh perspective but still an experienced perspective to the Hastings City Council. I’ve never been elected to office but I have covered Hastings’ local government and the community at large through my fifteen years with Hastings Community TV. I began as a part time reporter, then served ten years as the Executive Director of the station. This experience has provided great insight, knowledge and connections that would be valuable to the City Council. I’ve also been a co-owner of a local business since then and a proud parent of kids in our school district. Oh and I can’t forget local dog owner - I bring our three dogs to the City’s dog park several times a week. So I bring a variety of perspectives that would be of value.
1. Attempt to mend our divided community. Unfortunately politics have divided our town and it's something I feel could be addressed with a collaborative effort. 2. Ensure we are doing our best to recruit and retain high quality City staff. We've lost a few good ones in the last few years. They all could have been out of the City's control but if something is, we address it. 3. Explore more winter recreation options for our youth. There is far less to do in the winter, and kids don't hibernate.
I do have experience working with the Hastings PD and FD, and am well familiar with the local media. I'd be happy to help with any safety messages or communications projects to produce something for the community. I'd also be willing to utilize online communities to communicate with residents and businesses on public safety concerns and solutions.
