My Promises to you
As a former candidate for Iowa House, I have and continue to be an advocate for safe,
healthy, and community based policing. Altoona’s police department has a strong positive
community presence, and has my full support. These positive interactions between police forces
and the communities they serve should be encouraged and celebrated, while continuing to work
toward to lowering negative interactions.
Designing our roadways is a difficult matter. There are several current issues that need to
be taken into account. One of these involves speeding and safety. I support low cost and
effective measures to reduce high speeds in our neighbors while allowing individuals to maintain
autonomy without the added usage of punitive measures such as speed cameras. Adding trees
and greenery in the medians is one viable option that will enhance our “green” appeal as well as
deter motorist from reaching high speeds. Simple and effective solutions ensure safety and lower
the need for police patrol in various areas.
