Message from the Mayor

The voters have spoken on the current tax reform proposal, and with much disappointment, I accept their decision.

Much analysis of this vote will surely follow, by all sides of this debate. I believe there are many and widely varied reasons for the rejection of this specific proposal. In the coming days, we will continue to engage many different voices and opinions, and seek a positive path forward for our beloved community.

I am committed, as always, to working closely with city council, as together we have many difficult decisions to make.
