Business owners, employees, companies, and the University of Illinois have help propel Champaign to the forefront of economic growth. The city should continue to help promote smart economic growth, and particularly it should continue to do what it can to provide support in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We live and work in a diverse city, and I am proud of that. We should continue striving to be a welcoming community for everyone.
Public safety is of paramount importance to people of Champaign. From bolstering our police department, to supporting our firefighters, to investing in the LIFT Champaign program with UNIT 4, to developing and implementing the Community Gun Violence Reduction Blueprint, to the work of our Neighborhood Ambassadors and the Champaign Community Coalition, the city council has shown we are serious about tackling the issues facing our community that are directly and indirectly related to gun violence.
Infrastructure comprises the physical foundation of our city. Good roads, safe sidewalks, street lights, and ease of transportation is what makes Champaign a desirable and comfortable place to live and work. We should continue to fund our infrastructure improvements, and particularly our work on improving the infrastructure and safety of the Garden Hills neighborhood.
