HOW TO HELP

Leadership for Transformation

Here are some of the areas of opportunity before us.

Creation of a new Master City Plan

Created by all of us, with plans from every Commission, let us bring clarity of values and vision to every aspect of our City.

Total transparency of all financial data

Allow all access to our financial data and financial reports for all our citizens. And measurie our success by clearly delineated metrics. 

Embrace Open Government

Citizens have the right to access the documents and proceedings of government to facilitate effective public oversight.

Develop Digital City Hall

This is a a chance to reengineer the underlying processes of how City Gov’t interfaces with citizens and operates across departments more effeciently.

Create Eureka Springs Community College

Let us create the forces that birth new opportunities for all Eureka Springs and surrounding areas. Let education be one centerpiece of our focus.

Create our Business Incubation Center

Let us as City Government increasingly help our citizens to open new businesses and thrive in them. Let us bring strategic resources to help each other.

Create Eureka Springs Vo-Tec School

Created by all of us common people, let us lead Eureka to equip the minds and skillsets of all who want to advance in their creatorship.

Fill City Council with people of vision 

I envision City Council and its meetings being at our City Auditorium filled with people because City Government is creative, responsive, and fun.

Uniting Eureka Springs

Not a career politician, I worked for decades mostly in my own business helping small businesses with planning and making their financial data meaningful for daily decision making.

We pull for each other here, for we are each other, as one, becoming one, in the actionated behavior of a community that’s become conscious.
