Trust.

Taking Down The Door
• On day one of Jolene’s tenure as mayor, the door to the mayor’s office will come off, because it’s our office.

Open Communication
• Keeping the lines of communication open with city leaders ensures a diverse and robust conversation about the future of our city. As we’ve done in the campaign, we’ll continue to do, with a text line for citizens and Facebook live events.

Innovation.

Spending Smarter With Technology

• Creative thinking is critical to our city’s continued success. From providing telemedicine tablets to first responders to empower those entrusted with our safety, to “Lyfting” up public transportation and roads maintenance through technology, we will always look for new ways to do things better. As long as we keep looking for them, Sioux Falls will never run out of good ideas.

What’s Next

• It’s also critical for the long-term financial well being of Sioux Falls, that we look for what industry, such as biotech or cyber security, will help sustain us for the next decade or two and provide good, well-paying jobs.

Growth.

Growing For Tomorrow

• If we’re truly going to maximize our investment in projects like the Premier Center, we can’t stop at one building. We must develop the area with additional retail, restaurants, and mixed income housing. Whether we’re talking about Downtown, central Sioux Falls, or the Premier Center entertainment district, there will always be room for Sioux Falls to grow, if we commit to growing smart.

Sustainable Solutions

• As we grow, we must face the challenges Sioux Falls is already dealing with and those that will come in the future. We must commit to continued resources for our public safety officials and first responders, an area I’ve already worked on across South Dakota as part of Jolene’s Law. As we address the issues of work force development and affordable housing, we can look to housing-first models to empower individuals and drive economic success for all.
