Rate your support on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most support and 1 being the least.

City Council, District 9

Rating:  3
With a Council / City Manager form of government, Council provides direction for the City Manager and staff to execute contracts. I will vote based upon the resolution presented, so making a blanket commitment to require a final post-vote review is counter to my philosophy of a government that is accountable to constituents and remains efficient.
