I know what it’s like to make a payroll, to grow a business in a good and bad economy. I also understand what makes businesses tick, what interests them, and what turns them off. Having worked with thousands of companies, I’m very familiar with the challenges they face.
I’m running for City Council because I believe I can make a difference in Idaho Falls. I will work to bring businesses to our community, to make our community so attractive, that when I show them what we have to offer, they won’t want to go anywhere else.
As businesses enter our community, we’ll experience what it’s like to have a rapidly growing tax base, which will make our community and local government very healthy, solving many of our current financial challenges.
