1) Lower taxes. 2) Safer sidewalks.

Several things, but an immediate issue is our trees. We need a comprehensive policy and a strategy to ensure proper tree cover and the right tree census going forward. Our experiences with the last few storms should make that obvious. We are blessed to have a committed and intelligent Shade Tree Commission, but somehow what they recommend doesn't seem to get any traction. It is a big issue and is only going to get more critical if we ignore it.

Mother Nature - with the increasing amount of storms that have hit our area we need to look at preventative measures, response resources and post storm cleanup and community based assistance. It appears we are going to have more of these conditions not less. School safety – while I don’t think armed police in every school every hour of the day is necessary what ever happen to the DARE officer who had a frequent presence in our schools? I know there have been many changes made for school security and safety drills that are done in cooperation with school and police staff. But why there is not at least one officer assigned to the school district during when schools are in session. Back to basics – make sure we have proper funding and efficiencies for our core services and a preventative maintenance plans for both our schools and town operations. Do this before we spend money the luxury items like turf fields.
