Panhandlers: Laws prohibit passing anything from a car. But donating a $1 to our established non-profits can double, triple and even quadruple the benefit for those in real need. Sometimes not giving a direct handout can be our most compassionate choice.
Homeless: Transitioning the homeless out of their situation is our first choice. Rather than warehousing people in shelters, dial 2-1-1 an let our Coalition of Care non-profits maximize available help. Let's focus on solutions that provide hope.
How we govern matters
Fiscal responsibility: All taxpayers want excellent value for their taxes. Careful analysis before, during and after any expenditure will be required of my administration. Transparency is the standard.
Prepared for the future: Maintain city infrastructure in good repair. Prepare for ongoing maintenance and replacement of aging infrastructure. Be transparent about upcoming city needs and work as a community for sound solutions.
Respect: Work with Council respectfully and collaboratively.
Non-Profits: Support the efforts and contributions of all our non-profits as they provide critical services.
Volunteerism: Encourage our private citizens and groups to contribute value and skills to our community.
Universities Relations: Embrace our universities and their students as a vital part of Provo's culture and economic engine. Work to enhance each other's contribution and coordination which elevates our community.
