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.
