Effective for billing for January of 2025, the City of Washington hereby directs Washington Utilities to cease assessing storm water fees on all bills, residential, commercial or industrial on all building receiving Washington Utility services whether within the city limits of Washington, the Extraterritorial Jurisdictions (ETJs) or any other building reeving direct or indirect services from Washington Utilities.

ISSUES NEEDING ATTENTION
  • Unchallenged Good-Ole-Boy Network
  • Clean Up Trashed Properties
  • Transparency & Public Input in Local Government
  • Investigate Misappropriation of Funds
  • Our City is Suffering from a Brain Drain

Your city government neglects any area that is outside of the historic district or outside the personal bubbles in which city bureaucrats and elected officials operate.

It is high-time that city government operates on behalf of every citizen in the system and not just those with power and influence.

Electing me to the City Council sends a message that city government is for ALL citizens and not just the elite.

We have 22 city officials that make over $75,000 a year in salaries in addition to an average 38% benefits package.

The city greedily chose to give these individuals an additional 5% wage increase in this year's budget instead of using that money to give us a full complement of 12 EMTs which we desperately need.   Instead we will be receiving only 4 more, 8 in total.

When the median income in Washington is $37,200 this is obscene.

Our city is suffering from a brain drain.

Population has decreased from the 2010 census to the 2020 census as our young people go off to college to develop skills that they can't find jobs for here in the city.

It is time to enact tax incentives, decreased regulations and have proactive city officials that seek high-tech, high-paying firms to locate in the city to stem the flow of our young people out from the city.
