Economic Development

Jobs and enhanced economic opportunities are critical to our future growth.  As Mayor I will support Regional Tourism Act projects  and Pueblo County 1A projects in the City of Pueblo.

I will work to eliminate resistance and barriers to economic  development that sometimes exists in City agencies by insisting on a customer service model that helps facilitate problem solving. I will consider establishing an ombudsman in the mayor’s office to help facilitate citizen and business interaction with city government.

I will establish relationships with local business and manufacturers to help them be successful and help them expand.

The City of Pueblo will develop a plan for infrastructure that makes economic development efficient.

As Mayor, I will work with educational institutions to ensure  that we have a trained work force with basic job skills and habits.
