For almost 40 years I’ve made a career out of listening to people. That’s what journalism is – listening to what folks have to say; hearing what concerns them, trying to understand what is important to our community. I can’t count the hours I’ve spent in local government meetings, puzzling over budgets, plans, policies and problems. From incinerators to dredge spoil to annexations to Mount Frac, I’ve been there … listened to it, thought about it, written about it. I’ll take those years of experience at the press table to the council table. I’ll keep on listening, thinking, and probably do some writing as well – conversation goes both ways. For all these years Winona’s been a good place to live … let’s work together to make it even better.
Every member of our community deserves a good place to live, a good place to work, a good place to play. The health, safety, and quality of life of every one of us is -- and will be -- my top priority. I’m not about to say, “Elect me and I’m gonna do this or I’m not gonna do that…” I don’t know what might happen in January, much less what we might have to deal with four years down the road. I can only point to the values that will guide my choices.
Public safety isn’t all about cops and robbers. It’s more than a lack of criminal activity or effective law enforcement. It’s fire, rescue, EMTs. Mental health and family services. In a safe neighborhood people have stable jobs paying a living wage, quality housing they can afford, food in the fridge, assured health care, and neighbors they know and care about -- who know and care about them. It comes down to “When we all do better, we all do better” – and are safer as a result.
