Number One Priority – Infrastructure
Yes, we have some infrastructure issues in Madison. From street and water issues, to electrical issues, to occasional issues with timely snow removal. We have some oversight issues and our budget priorities may be problematic. BUT – the majority of our City of Madison workers are dedicated professionals and I know they care deeply about this town and the residents. This water treatment plant accident highlights the need for better contingency plans, backup facilities, and better oversight. We must dedicate resources to fixing our infrastructure before we experience catastrophic failures. The City Commission needs to take a more hands on approach to running this city when it comes to infrastructure. I have advocated this for 10 years and it will be the platform for my campaign for City Commission this spring. There is nothing wrong about asking questions, demanding answers, and requiring accountability. You can be proud of your town and still demand results at the same time.
