What is the most pressing challenge facing our community and how would you work to address it?
GROWTH. As Sioux Falls fills with wonderful new neighbors, as we enjoy exciting new entertainment and business opportunities, we cannot ignore growth’s downsides. We risk missing the chance to develop affordable housing, ameliorate traffic congestion, and curtail violent crime. Interwoven is the need to upgrade our workforce. Without efforts to educate local workers, the crisis will persist. When we help families locate nurturing childcare, we free up hours that can be reinvested performing jobs our economy demands. Finally, any civic vision that fails to protect our natural environment and safeguard our physical and mental health is woefully incomplete.
