We have worked hard these past years to justify your support. Since taking office, we have seen the unfunded pension liability decreasing. As our City's Finance Committee Chairman, it was a good feeling when we recommended a plan to reduce the liability completely in fifteen years using a plan that will save approximately $45,000,000 in interest - a plan that does not increase the budget above what we have anticipated.
We have added another school resource officer to our high schools and middle schools. And we have deleted a total of forty-eight City Council policies, which decreased our bureaucracy by 108 pages and over twenty-one thousand words.
And the list goes on and on – without a single tax increase on it.
Thank you so much for your consideration and I hope to earn your support.
