Traffic and Transportation

Traffic is one of the biggest issues affecting our Town and bad policies over the last 25 years has allowed too many traffic impacts to be created without proper mitigation.  We are currently not using all available authority and the authority we are using is not being used to its fullest extent.  I have spent the last four plus years developing solutions and a comprehensive understanding of the Town’s related authority.  I began proposing potential solutions in February of 2019 and was subsequently appointed to chair the traffic impact analysis sub-committee which produced a written set of recommendations to the Huntersville Ordinances Advisory Board and the Town Board.

Citizen Engagement and Education

Balanced Regulation

The impact of regulation is something that citizens of Huntersville experience daily.  It affects our road infrastructure, housing affordability and availability, water quality, local employment opportunities and location and cost of goods and services.  Little to no regulation creates chaos and too much stops progress.  Finding a balance between the public interest and the rights of property owners is essential to having a vibrant local community.

Sound Fiscal and Risk Management

The Town Board has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of the citizens of Huntersville as well as to provide oversight.  Part of this role is to ensure that tax payer dollars are being spent wisely and that the town is not taking on risks that would expose tax payers to potential liability.  In addition to annual financial audits, the town should conduct an independent risk and compliance audit to ensure that all of the Town’s ordinances, processes and procedures are in line with the Town’s authority, industry best practices, case law and constitutional limits.
