My primary objective is to contribute to the continued success of Georgetown.  We are forecast to have a tremendous growth in the next 25 years.  We have to lead-turn that growth, otherwise it will overwhelm us and we will lose control of our destiny.  Our task will be to build a bridge to the future without incurring a tax burden that is tantamount to a plank we walk to our financial ruin and deters the very growth we are attempting to accomodate.  In that process, we have to be careful to unite the various parts of our community; we cannot allow ourselves to be divided by I-35 into the “downtown” and those of us who live out Williams Drive (especially in Sun City).  A fiscally prudent, united Georgetown will best serve the interests of our community.
