Ben’s Priorities

 

• Bring a responsible approach to homelessness—

Offer help to those in need while taking action to

protect businesses, customers, and neighborhoods.

• Ensure adequate and stable funding and programs

for public safety—It’s essential that residents, visitors

and shoppers feel safe in Everett.

Balance the budget with careful spending and avoid

taxes that discourage sales and investment. Encourage

businesses that will bring family wage jobs and

increase the tax base.

Promote responsible development and a range of

housing choices while protecting homeowners that are

the anchors of our neighborhoods.

Enhance the quality of life in south Everett.

I’ve been working directly with the project manager of the Silver Lake Trail for more than a year and will broaden these efforts as the council member for your district.
