Question 1:

What’s your vision for Richmond? How will the lives of the people in our community be improved as a result of your time in office?

Richmond is the ideal community that is easy to come to and hard to leave. We are blessed with many resources that help position us to succeed. For Richmond to meet our potential, we must continue to invest in our safety, invest in our quality of life, and focus on our economy. With these core components in place, Richmond will continue to enjoy a growing community.  My vision of Richmond is a community working together, exemplifying our core values, and meeting the needs of our citizens. During my time on the commission, our community has seen continued job growth, improved citizen engagement, and investments in social programs that improve the lives of all citizens. We will continue to be a citizen-first community.

When people look at Richmond there is that small home town feel. I want to keep it that way by helping the center of our town grow from the center outward. To build a city that continues to have the small town feel you must build up the downtown. It is the heartbeat of any town. I would like to help change the layout of downtown by really going after changing the state highway from going through our downtown and moving it to the bypass where it belongs. This would allow for Richmond to make a one way wrapping circle around the downtown area. By doing this you can extend the sidewalks and expand the parking area on the main street. You will get rid of the parallel parking and would add spaces for people to get in and out more easily. Also the vision I have would be to improve the accessibility to get downtown. Our sidewalks need expansion to allow for businesses to have outdoor seating, benches, or even more greenery. This would push a renewed downtown development.
