Being Mayor is more than just a title and a vote on city council. It’s a responsibility to make yourself available to the residents and listen to their concerns and needs. That means inclusive government that represents the concerns important to the people, not the politicians.
Through the diversity of Abe’s professional experiences, he will cultivate a culture of collaboration, and not one of conflict. Abe is focused on responsible spending and will improve efficiency and eliminate waste. He’ll work with our City’s dedicated staff members to investigate shared service opportunities with surrounding communities, consider money-saving solutions proven successful in other towns, and will leverage all the federal and state money we can for open space, transit and infrastructure.
Abe shares the community’s concerns with respect to controlling growth, alleviating traffic, and investing in essential services. Oviedans should insist on a government that is responsive, transparent, and competent. As your mayor, Abe will be hands-on, accessible, and will give city employees the authority and support to effectively and efficiently do their jobs.
