Priorities for 2010

Each year I identify key priorities to guide my work. So far, I have identified 11 areas I plan to focus on and would like your input about what is most (1st choice) and least (last choice) important. If you want to share your thoughts please feel free to cut and paste the list below into an email, rank as many as you like in order of your preference and email it back to me at cam.gordon@ci.minneapolis.mn.us . Also, feel free to add your own ideas.



( ) Close the racial disparities in poverty and employment

( ) Increase affordable housing and reduce homelessness

( ) Fight climate change and work to clean up our soil, water and air

( ) Improve community policing and police-community relations

( ) Prevent youth violence and increase youth employment and health

( ) Enhance civilian oversight of police and end racial profiling

( ) Manage public dollars wisely and keep taxes and fees down

( ) Support small businesses

( ) Create green jobs

( ) Ensure that there is funding and support for neighborhood based planning and revitalization

( ) Improve the “City’s” relationship with other units of government including the park and school boards.

I am also always anxious to hear what concerns and goals you have for our city and your neighborhood. Please feel free to drop me a note, phone message or email anytime sharing your ideas and letting me know how can I serve you better?

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year from all of us in the Ward 2 office.
