As a long-time resident of Bentonville with experience in business, philanthropy and City Government, I have seen a lot of growth from a lot of different angles. I believe Bentonville has the foundation to be the best city in America, not one of the best cities, but the very best. In order to continue to build on our Citys’ successes and enter into a future that continues to promote quality of life, prosperity and safety, we must ensure responsible growth. We need to be sure that our planning continually focuses on building infrastructure that is able to maintain with growth and maintenance costs associated with growth. We need to be sure that we, as a community of citizens, work effectively within our available resources to enable this to happen. One of the best things about Bentonville is the passion people have to figure out how to get things done. As Mayor, I will enable and encourage innovation and solutions that ensure responsible growth within a fiscally responsible budget.
