Position Papers
Improving Public Safety Coordination
Our local emergency response system is ill-prepared for a major catastrophic event, such as an earthquake or terrorist attack, and the threat of terrorism has diverted critical federal resources from local coordinating activities.
Fixing The Tax Boomerang
Local control of tax dollars reduces waste and empowers communities.
Protecting Our Future
Protecting, nurturing, and educating our children is a shared priority for our community.
