Murray is finding her way through a period of extraordinary growth and opportunity in this state, while also fighting fiercely for a city history that deserves to be treasured. Balancing the impulse to grow with the desire to maintain Murray’s unique character is one of the defining missions of this campaign.
Protecting the community is a more complex problem than it use to be. Assessing the pitfalls and opportunities presented by modern public safety practices and working to build a system that brings the community together is a critical task for Murray’s government.
Government transparency means a government you can see. Murray citizens deserve better- a government that sees you. Modern cities need to be proactive, inviting citizens into the conversation, encouraging and inspiring the locals to participate and share their perspective. Building a true partnership between government and community is a major motivation of this campaign.
Murray should be designed for the people who live here, not the cars that drive through here. Communities grow up within and influenced by the streets, sidewalks, parks, and amenities that they are built upon. Murray will be stronger, safer, and more prosperous if we invest in what makes us special- our neighborhoods.
Our shared responsibility to protect our environment has never been more apparent. Murray needs to conserve water and reduce our carbon footprint. We can use modern policy and new technology to do it while making the city more efficient and keeping it a beautiful, welcoming place.
