John is committed to bringing new businesses and opportunities to our community while maintaining the small town character that makes Brookhaven so special. A smart growth development program must promote greater livability, mobility, and development alternatives in existing corridors, employment centers, and town centers. John will lead the efforts to deliver programs and policies that foster business success in ways that contribute to economic vitality and adhere to the City of Brookhaven’s values around diversity and sustainability.
One of the most challenging elements of any urban setting is to develop a transportation system that integrates safety and operational efficiency within our existing neighborhoods and retail areas. John has the experience and the vision needed to be a leader on these challenges. To successfully implement his vision for Brookhaven, improvements in transportation infrastructure must be planned and implemented in such a way that weaves future development into neighborhoods and business districts while minimizing the impact to residents. John is committed to improving transportation for all in Brookhaven, including drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and those who utilize public transit.
A great parks system makes a great city. Brookhaven’s parks and recreation plan is a sustainable, and innovative plan that require continued investment and commitment from residents and city leaders. As your next Councilman, John will collaborate with other city leaders and community stakeholders to identify policies, actions, and partnerships for planning parks, recreation facilities, and programs that reflect the vision of a world-class city. John will provide opportunities for everyone and promote a parks system that is relevant, accessible, sustainable, while equitable and that meets the changing needs and priorities of District 4 residents.
Elected Leaders and law enforcement have a collective responsibility to keep residents safe. This can be done by building trust and developing partnerships with the community. John will work with both the residents of District 4 and the Brookhaven Police Department to continue the great work of keeping our communities safe. John will ensure that the police department is adequately funded to remain a first class organization. John’s core belief is that everyone must work together in this important role of keeping our citizens safe and providing services that enhance the quality of life for all. As your next councilman, John will continue to support public safety goals that focus on crime reduction, community engagement, and the utilization of technology.
