A RENEWED HOPE FOR MARION
There’s a lot to love about Marion - we have some incredible individuals, youth, and groups in our community. And though we’ve made some good progress in the past few years, I believe we can do even better. Let’s work together to improve the quality of life in Marion, keep our local government accountable, and strengthen our growing economy:
Improving our Quality of Life
Residents of Marion deserve to experience a quality of life and health that is the best in the State. Income levels, adult and childhood poverty rates, and overall quality of life, are among the worst in the state. We can leverage the resources right here in our community to overcome these issues.
Holding our Government Accountable
The role of the City Council should be to represent the best interests of everyone who lives in our city. We can build on the financial improvements made in recent years, and hold our government to a higher level of transparency and accountability.
Promoting our Growing Economy
Individuals and businesses are increasingly choosing to invest in Marion. We are seeing entrepreneurs put their ideas into action and it is having a ripple effect throughout our community. As a city, we need to do everything we can to support efforts like these that grow our local economy and provide employment.
