Progress for the Future
We must fully fund public education. This includes hiring and retaining quality teachers and education staff who will earn an living wage. We must insure a supportive and safe learning environment for our students.
We must design and implement a strategic plan the will stimulate accommodate and stimulate responsible growth and development in Knox County. The plan must consider environment factors and the natural landscape to prevent further degradation and harm. The blueprint must have infrastructure that will accommodate the growth. We must include the neighborhoods and community members input in the planning process.
We must engage community and neighborhoods in the political process including policy making and ongoing oversight. Local government should be of, by and for the people. We believe that our community knows best what works and does not work and should always have their voices heard and factored into any decision.
