As Mayor I intend to guide the City staff as well as citizens through the process of creating and implementing a strategic plan. This will be critical to ground Pocomoke with a united vision and to build the foundation of small wins as we work towards big improvements. The strategic plan will be comprehensive and cover topics ranging from our water and infrastructure to our youth and recreational opportunities and everything in between. There is a lot of work to be done and we need to be strategic and prioritize how to address these problems one step at a time.
Pocomoke has many challenges, but I believe that by working together, leveraging partnerships, and building from small wins to big gains we can make Pocomoke a better place to live, work, and play.
Water & Infrastructure
Water quality has been a historic and ongoing challenge in Pocomoke. Steps are being taken to improve the quality by replacing pipes, but I would pose questions about the process to see how we can improve the timeline and overall outcomes.
Youth & Recreation
Pocomoke needs a safe and supportive environment for our youth to learn, grow, and play. The youth are our future, but they influenced by people of all ages who support and empower them to be their best. That is why a recreation center would be a place for social, educational, or recreational activities for all ages and backgrounds. It takes a village to raise a child and to improve a community, so the health and well-being of all people in Pocomoke is paramount to our success.
Community & Economic Development
Improvement of our community as a whole as well as our economy are critical to improving Pocomoke now and setting us up for a brighter future. Bringing more and a variety of jobs to support current residents as well as bring in new residents will help boost the economy. Improving our community, both downtown and throughout our neighborhoods, is a way to improve the appeal of Pocomoke and the quality of life for our residents.
