WHITELY THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2,I, 2,O10 5:30-7:3 PM z 260 HEALDSBURG AVENUE SUITE I 0 I HEALDSBURG Appetizers will be served CITY COUNCIL - CAROL RUSSELL continued nue: We all know you can only cut so deep before you hit bone. Criti- cal services must be maintained while many functions and proce- dures are required by law. However, new or increased taxes and fees must always be the last resort as they are too often regressive and counter to economic growth. Our budget's health is improved far more securely and fairly by a healthy local economy. 3) Invest resources wisely: Put every city asset (land, equipment, technology, natural resources, money and, most of all, people) to work to generate the highest re- turns while also taking advantage of the unique opportunities a bad economy can provide. Examples: The City is conducting an on-going "Best Practices" revi- talization of its organizational core including how staffing is structured and deployed, how outsources and technology can best be used to cut costs while enhancing both the quantity and quality of the work output needed to provide services for residents and businesses. How important is attracting new business to Cloverdale and how would you facilitate new business locating here? Business--new and existing--is the life's blood of our economy. We need to continue, of course, to search out and encourage start-ups and relocating or expanding busi- nesses but we must also help our existing businesses to thrive and grow. To reach these goals, I advocate a double-tracked strategic plan with buy-in from the council, chamber and economic development con- sultant to create a team that contin- ually recruits new business while also assisting existing businesses in meaningful ways. Examples: A) Expedite the process for all new and expanding enterprises. Be business-friendly. B) To recruit someone--go where they go, write what they read, etc. I've suggested a nearly zero-cost business recruitment tool: short breakfast or luncheon talks for trade and community organiza- tions on how we beat out much richer, better known competitors to become the "Coolest Small City In the West" and garner the great PR that followed, too. C) Think out of the box! After in- troducing the concept of bringing in a non-profit "micro-business" in- cubator, I watch in gratitude nd ployees and customers looking for great businesses. E) Over the years, I've advocated for a unified "Vision" like those that help other small cities to ex- press and then realize a mutual im- age of their community's sense of place and economic future. Do you approve of using city re- development funds to pay for a new police station? As the council's 1one "No" vote on redevelopment requests that did not merit the use of public debt, I support the new Police facility be- cause: 1) The current, non-earth- quake proof, building is woefully inadequate for public safety opera- tion and use of these funds for recti- fying that is permitted. 2) It is imperative that our residents, prop- erty and businesses have an up-to- date Police Department able to serve and protect without the prob- lems caused by cramped, deterio- rating facilities. 3) We must keep out the crime that blights other cit- ies and kills their economies. Isn't that what redevelopment is de- signed to do? What is your position on the proposed Indian gaming facility and hotel. Hotels are great; but I do not sup- port a casino. How would ,you encourage the completion of the SMART train coming to Cloverdale. In 2008, when a long-time SMART Board Member from our City,C0uncil resigned unexpected'- ly, I knew I hat.o step jntthe breach even though it required run- ning for a seat and taking on many hours of extra work per month as a member of (now) three transit-re- lated Boards. Shortly after winning the seat, as the only member north of Windsor and with a rallying cry of "No taxa- tion without transportation!" I halt- ed a well-meant but ill-conceived "Strategic Plan" that could have cut off Cloverdale before adequate at- tempts were made to find funds for our portion. Why are you running for city council and how can you make a difference? I love Cloverdale. I love serving my neighbors and friends. I love the work. Able to put in extra hours and serve in a range of government and political roles to help us take our rightful place at the table, I be- lieve the need for Cloverdale to in- crease our "profile" and economic strength while upgrading our infra- structure, an c9.seryingpu X re.-. ,awe as a volunteer Steering Com..sources is more crucial than ever. I mittee works to make it happen. I organized a delegation that met with the president of Ray's to re- quest store upgrades that may less- en the "leakage" of our retail dollars and help all Furber Plaza stores. D) Keep finding low cost/no cost ways to increase and retain in town the local profits that generate our jobs and retail tax dollars. Step up outreach around our region and be- yond through "social network- ing"/in-bound marketing that "* brings us employers looking for great opportunities along with em- believe I have helped and that there are sure signs of progress, so I'll leave it to voters to determine, based upon the past four years, if I have and will continue to make a difference. Presented by Jeff and Tina Tate ONE] TWO! THREE! RED LIGHT! The next time you're sitting at a red light, consider this: Many traffic lights switch in response to how many cars are entering the intersection. Sometimes, an electrically charged wire spread loop be- neath the pavement forms a magnetic field, which becomes disrupted as vehi- cles pass over the loop. Each disruption is recorded and sent to a control box at the intersection, where a computer analyzes the data. Persistent disruptions mean that many vehicles are passing through the intersection and the light should remain green. Cessation of disruptions signals the light to turn red. Lights do not stay green indefinitely because there is a maximum amount of seconds allowed before the computer switches the green light to red. Hint: Other ways traffic lights "count" vehicles at intersections involve the use of radio waves, microwaves, cameras, and 3ressure-sensitive plates. ......... . tliorget l1!aru ii' , Jeff and Tina Tate are the owners of Cloverdele Automotive & Tires, located at 210 So.
