1. What are some specific things that you have done as a resident and/or elected official to affect the growth of our town from a commercial/business perspective (A) and, separately, from a residential/housing perspective (B)?
(A) Having moved my business to Pleasant View and being a small business owner, I get a front-row seat on the business needs of the community. I have dozens of citizens in my shop every day, which gives them an opportunity to express concerns and lets them know first hand that I am ALWAYS listening. Even if I don't agree, I will always listen, because as an elected official, its important people know my door is always open. Being a small business owner, I am able to relate to the needs of other businesses, the stresses of business development, or making payroll, but also new business opportunities. The small businesses, restaurants, and mom and pop stores in Pleasant View are crucial to the success of our town. I am glad to have played a small roll in helping small businesses like Flyte's open. I'm proud to have larger businesses like the Hampton Inn here. They are a big help to our parks budget-which frees up money for other key projects like infrastructure and Police/Fire/Public Works.
(B) Last month, I got to be the voice for the area of town most likely to be affected by the proposed apartment development. From leading discussions on social media to having numerous 1 on 1 conversation with residents closest to this development, listening to their concerns, and being their voice to the council was so important to our citizens. Another example was me being a level headed voice on the new impact fee for development-when my opponent wanted to unrealistically hit these builders with fees soo high it would have potentially crushed their developments. You see, many of these builders are LOCAL family builders and our community, many of their staff members, subcontractors, and local real estate agents rely on the success of these builders. They shop local, buy local, and support local. Not all builders are local, but they still hire local, shop local, and spend locally. If the projects from builders fail and go unfinished, they become a blight on Pleasant View-like what happened when the market crashed in 2008 and we had many neighborhoods become abandoned by their developers. To help work with our builders, the council, the mayor, and county commissioners to find a middle ground that worked for everyone while helping add more money for schools was a win/win for Pleasant View.
2. What are some of your plans, if elected as Mayor, to impact residential and commercial growth?
Keeping our infrastructure on the forefront like stormwater on PV main street, keeping with the plans for future road paving projects provided by the traffic committee, and making sure we correct any areas that are lagging behind is key. But also we need to plan for needs that will arise and things we could not forsee. So we need to be flexible and be able to adjust when needed.
I know bigger businesses will come, and I'm happy to help. They bring in revenue that help pay our needs. But I really want to focus on smaller businesses that want to take a chance on Pleasant View. I want to help people chase their dreams of owning their own business. And I plan to do all I can to help them succeed by putting systems in place that will connect them to other local businesses, accountants, suppliers, or others that can work with them (business to business) and possibly help mentor them along the way. This will help all of our businesses succeed! This is my commitment to you as Mayor.

"First let me say I have done nothing by myself, with that being said I was apart of the board when we developed the residential and commercial corridors we currently have today, along with the state planners we formulated a plan of what we expected to see on those areas, I was instrumental in the remodeling of Balthrop park as well as the purchase of the land at community park, I spearheaded both of those purchases and brought to light the lack of area for our kids to play. There were only a few subdivisions in the area pleasant hills, hunt lane,westridge,keystone, town pride had just started then. We knew in 2000 Pleasant View was going to grow, it was just a matter of time. Harris farms and the village were the 2 biggest developments that came while I was on the board. We tried to get ahead of the curve, unfortunately with no funds you can only do so much, and commercial was non existent at that time.
If elected Mayor, I want to put a board of citizens as well as business owners together and look at what we really want here, let's be honest there has never been a house that pays like a commercial business, so what would be smart for us to do, look at getting more commercial growth and making sure it's what WE want in our town.
Our residential growth has far outgrown our commercial as well as our infrastructure that was put in place at that time, it is time that we slow down and look at the infrastructure and get it back on track, without that no commercial will come."
