Where He Stands on the Issues
(From his website)
Conservation: Growing up surfing and fishing in the area, I consider the conservation of the lagoon and our beaches a high priority, so they can continue to be enjoyed by our future generations.
Golf Carts: The current policy requires golf cart owners to register their golf cart as a Low Speed Vehicle with the state. We should create a policy that allows the city to inspect the golf carts, assigning them a sticker that the owner would pay for, which would allow the revenue to stay within the city, as opposed to going to the state. This would allow the city to have more funds to keep up with the additional costs of the increased volume of golf carts. Also, it would be beneficial to widen the sidewalk along South Patrick allowing golf carts to utilize it, alongside bikers and runners.
Short Term Rentals: They’re buying up all of the houses, which prices out local families, they’re buying multiple homes in the city (the revenue ends up going to their home states, not in our local economy, which leaves the increased costs to the local taxpayer on the additional services with increased workload), safety of having a continual, large amount of transient people, there’s currently no limit to how many STR’s a city can have. Indian Harbour is only 2 square miles and there are currently 300+ listed on websites.
Beach Parking: Surrounding cities are switching to a pay-to-park at the beaches. City residents get a FREE parking pass, but if you live outside of the city limits, you must pay to park. Indian Harbour should adopt this same policy and have the FREE parking reciprocated to surrounding cities. Without this, beach-goers will have the tendency to go to our beaches, which will clog up our beaches, making it hard for us to be able to access them.
