We want to create opportunities for everyone to dream.
One of the primary goals of government should be to trust, serve, and protect the needs and dreams of its citizens. We need to make sure that the culture within every city department is focused on facilitating economic development.
Our children need hope for a future in Redding for our city to prosper. Many of our poor citizens have lost hope as they do not see a future in a retail based economy. The number one reason a child does not complete high school is loss of hope. Let's find ways to make sure the dreams of our children can come true in Redding.
Real job growth doesn't come from government, it arises out of confidence in the human spirit from free governments. When natural entrepreneuer spirit is high, jobs and innovation follow.
