When I took office, this city was experiencing some of its hardest economic times, and my first priority was to use my financial expertise to make the cuts necessary to put us back on a sound footing. Since then, we have cut taxes by 25% and reduced debt by 80% while growing our reserves to over $12 million.

Although we did not expect the COVID-19 pandemic and the financial crisis it is causing, we are entering this crisis strong and I am committed to making the hard choices necessary to ensure the city is fiscally secure when I leave office.
