Restoring Integrity means leading City Council with a governing style that reflects fairness, transparency and results.
City Council has the responsibility of representing the interests of the community – both residents and businesses. City Council provides checks and balances. Council's most significant role is to enact laws, adopt the city's operating budget, monitor the execution of plans and programs, establish long- and short-term objectives and priorities and ensure the effectiveness of local government.
As local legislators, councilmembers are responsible for and responsive to the citizens who elected them. As City Council President I will work tirelessly to address the underlying issues of crime and violence by taking a comprehensive approach to governance. Leadership must focus on Workforce Development, Employment & Housing, Education, Public Safety, and the overall Health & Wellness of our beloved city, residents, businesses and city employees.
Restoring Integrity…Effective Leadership
As members of Council we must create a healthy and productive work environment to ensure we are giving residents and businesses in our city 100%. Human capital is our most precious resource and effective leadership understands that basic principle. As elected representatives our duty is to serve the interests of the public. We have been entrusted with the opportunity to serve and as City Council President I will ensure we respond to the diverse needs of Wilmington residents and businesses.
