The primary ongoing initiative in District 7 will be to ensure that all areas of the District are covered by an active neighborhood association.  While a majority of the District is served by an association, a large part of the Northwest quadrant of the District is not.  I'll continue to try to engage residents in a process to help fill this gap.  There are a number of city resources, including the Department of Planning and Development and West Side Neighborhood Resource Team, that can play a part in this process.

The second broad initiative is economic development.  We are struggling on the SW side to compete with both Fitchburg and Verona to remain competitive for development projects. It is vital that we work to streamline development processes and be responsive to the market, while protecting the factors that contribute to our vibrant quality of life in Madison.   Good economic development projects within the city are key to improving our tax base and giving us the ability to pay for the basic services we need and enjoy.
