I know how to make dollars work hard for you
I have been a key member of the management team in three successful start-up companies in the Spokane area and a member of the board of directors of another. These companies created over 3,000 jobs and brought millions of dollars into the area's economy each year.
Starting a new city government takes much the same skills and hard work as starting a company. The budget always is limited and one has to get the job done or the start-up is unsuccessful. In this case the budget is funded by your tax dollars. I know how to make these dollars work very hard for you. In fact, I may not need all you have provided to me and can arrange to return some.
When starting a company, one has to work with the resources at hand or spend money to buy more. In the case of the new city, good resources already are available in the police protection and fire protection areas. Many other resources also are available and should be carefully considered before another path is chosen. I am very good at working with available resources to accomplish the objectives given to me -- in this case creating a new city government and then operating it efficiently.
I am requesting your vote so that I can help you.
