I like this line of thinking, it really helps the rest of us in our voting decisions when we know what your plans are. I also agree with Neddy when he says it would be best if we could elect a council with similar ideas instead of each person potentially having completely different ideas. That said, I don't think the questions Neddy stated above should wait to be answered until someone is elected, we'd really need to know that up front to make an informed decision. Welp it appears to me that you had four plans in your email, and by the way thank you for being first to state them. Could you go back over them and respond to the how you would plan on doing it and under what time frame? (Innovative ideas are great, but don't mean much if they cant be executed.)
