Prioritize engagement with residents and businesses
Ward 5 residents deserve someone who cares about their issues, will listen to them and will fight every day to make their lives better. Carrie commits to having an open door, and an open ear to listen, and act on the concerns of the community. Carrie will work to increase civic engagement, so that all residents have an opportunity to shape the policies and direction of the town.
Elected officials are to serve their community, not the other way around. I became interested in elected service when a candidate knocked on my door, and asked my opinion about what issues were affecting my family. That candidate later became my state representative, and continued to seek my input about how legislation would impact my family. While we didn’t always agree on issues, I always felt as if my representative heard my concerns, and considered my position before deciding. I commit to being that type of leader.
Collaborate to solve traffic problems
Protect neighborhoods and promote safety
We also need to maintain community services such as the recreation center, pool, sporting facilities, parks, and library. These amenities are some of what makes Windsor a first-class place to live. As the town grows, I commit to Ward 5 that I will fight to ensure these vital amenities remain in our neighborhood, and not relocate newer developments.
As development continues, and the town grows, we must also ensure we have the infrastructure to support our population amidst new development. The Town Board must continue to take actions to protect our supply of clean and affordable drinking water. We must continue to ensure we maintain police staffing to protect our growing community, and we must work with the Fire District to maintain the excellent services we have today. These actions will ensure that Windsor remains the first-class town we know and love.
