Campaign Message Experienced Leadership and Proven Inegrity
To ensure the continuous growth of numerous projects including the Riverfront Development and the revitalization of the Central Business District. As promised in my first election to improve our Police Department, our city has gone from the 71st to the 24th safest city for our size. I want to continue this improvement to keep our city safe.
Experience. I have served 16 years on Dayton City Council and 4 years as Mayor. I have lived my entire life in the city of Dayton. During my four years as Mayor, we have increased and maintained a large surplus. My 25 years of successfully owning Boruske Brothers proves my ability to run our city. I would like the opportunity to continue building on our solid foundation by ensuring growth for the City of Dayton and its future generation.
At this time I do not see any services that need to be cut.
During my 4 years as the Mayor of Dayton, we have not increased property taxes. Our waste fees have decreased by 23%. At this time I do not see any issues that would warrant raising taxes.
