At the heart of my campaign is the idea that change comes from empowering the people.
My economic development strategy is no different- it is community centered, rooted in the understanding that we are all interconnected, and that we cannot elevate as a community until we work together to improve it collectively.
Development is fueled by investment, so I will take bold action to make Norristown more attractive to investors that will aid the needs of our community. I will attack vacant and blighted property, throwing support behind revitalization projects, and advocate for the 2nd District to be a business improvement district (BID).
As a BID, the city would devote more resources to cleaning and securing our neighborhood, and our district’s businesses would receive more marketing/traffic.
In the 2nd District, we have a relatively decent business district, but there is still lots of room for growth and collaboration.
