If elected, I would not propose starting the hydropower project unless we have undeniably accurate and proven data on the whole project that shows this to be a feasible investment.

Many people voted against this issue because the city didn’t follow proper procedure in developing this project. This process was not transparent and didn’t follow good business procedures. This is why oversight of government by City Council is so important. Oversight will be accomplished by regular reports in work sessions before any element of this process is to be continued.

The mayor and council need to hear from a proven reliable independent source about how this project could proceed in a successful manner as well as an accurate estimate of costs and repayment over time. This will take time to accomplish and probably most likely would last longer than the term of the mayor.
