While being fiscally responsible, there are FOUR core pillars that a city should focus on: Relationships, Infrastructure, Safety, and Engagement.
"Positive relationships create positive investments. Whether it's our schools, businesses, nonprofits, or everyday citizens, it takes ALL of us to create a positive community in which we want to live, work, and play. This also means being kind to those with whom you may disagree. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
"From gravel roads to four-lane highways, Westfield has experienced many changes in a short amount of time. We must be proactive and improve our roads, bridges, parks/trails, and other infrastructure projects. Investing NOW is not only fiscally responsible, but it will also allow us to have a solid plan for the future."
"Westfield has consistently been ranked as one of Indiana's safest cities. This is due to our fantastic Fire and Police departments. As our community continues to grow, we MUST support our public safety teams by hiring adequate staff, maintaining our facilities, purchasing equipment, and encouraging positive interactions."
"A house is not a home without activity. The same philosophy applies for a community. I want people to be PROUD to live in Westfield! Cheer on our Shamrocks, volunteer for an organization, attend a Westfield Welcome event...whatever it is, there have never been more opportunities to be engaged. WE are Westfield!"
