The city has had some successes on developing our economy in my short time on the council, but I'll be the first to admit that there has been some stagnation. Part of this is that we're still navigating a new world since the crest of the pandemic, but we need to do more to promote our city as a welcoming place for business.
We have the tools to grow good-paying jobs here with our community college as a pipeline for skilled labor in manufacturing and service industries. My message to job creators will continue to be that Auburn is open for business and use my office to attract lucrative opportunities for our city's economic vitality.
Solving our feelings of danger in our own neighborhoods is a long road and needs several pieces to be successful. This is priority number one for me on the city council.
Our police are doing everything they can. Being understaffed isn't helping the issue. We need to urgently manage problem areas where the most violence is taking place. I do welcome the updated pursuit law, but it's not enough to solve the problem. We need more community policing, better data tracking, increased bicycle patrols focused on community engagement, and to bring response times down. I'm committed to collaborating with our police and city council to fix these issues.
The crisis of affordable housing isn't exclusive to Auburn and the whole region has a lot of work to do to maintain and build the kind of housing that will keep up with our growing families and population.
Right now, we are working on a comprehensive plan to meet the growth for the next 20 years. In this plan, we have strategies to build more multi-family housing, which will drive new infrastructure projects.
