Council's top goals this year

  • Compensation policy
  • Responding to budget issues
  • Quick response to issues facing staff

Thoughts on the year ahead

"It's going to be challenging to respond to issues that come up quickly and need a fast response, especially wanting to make sure that the response does the best to represent our P&S staff."

"I'm glad to have the opportunity to serve. It's definitely a great learning and leadership opportunity. I think it's really important for people to serve and I am honored to be in this role this year."

Issue that could be the most important to the council this year

"Budget. It has such a trickle-down effect. It affects what we do and don't do. It's very tied to a lot of the issues that we, as a council, are interested in and our constituency is interested in. It's like throwing a big rock in a small pond -- it creates a lot of ripples."
