West Melbourne is an amazing place to live, work, and play and I want to make sure it continues to have that feeling of ‘home’ while also planning for the future. I believe we need to work with nearby cities and the county to address the traffic issues, continue to prioritize the maintenance of our roads, keep taxes low, ensure our city and schools are safe with proactive community policing, and work to attract desirable businesses that will be assets to our city. Each of these areas directly impacts our residents’ quality of life and can be achieved with purposeful planning and action.
