I am interested in being a candidate for City Commission to focus on important areas that effect the residents of Frankfort now and have long term impacts on the future.  These include:

Waste Management


2019 brought demise of city recycling.

Other communities are still capable of recycling glass, paper, and many

more types of
plastic. Our landfill space is decreasing at a fast rate as we
recycle less.
There are steps the City needs to take to reduce the amount of
waste and find better recycling solutions:

  • Encourage businesses to work with suppliers to reduce


  • Propose a shopping bag charge to encourage the use of reusable


  • Promote our municipal water “Frankfort On Tap” improving

       family budgets, dental

       health, and reducing litter.

  • Promote composting of kitchen scraps and lawn clippings at

       home, to reduce garbage

       and create quality garden soil.

  • Adopt a chicken/no roosters ordinance for animal enjoyment

       and home egg production.

  • Introduce a Coop Tour community


Rebuild the City Core

In 2018 Frankfort lost the Convention Center, Expo, the Book
Fair, and graduations. We need new facilities to restore the
vitality of Frankfort.

  • Set priorities for recreation, entertainment, and housing

       facilities in Parcels B and C. We have one opportunity to move

  • Infill downtown and south Frankfort with a balance of historic

       preservation and new structures.

  • Make Frankfort an appealing location for professionals with

       young families by encouraging housing investment.

  • Connect neighborhoods with hiking and bicycle trails. Open

       the Broadway Bridge for non-vehicle use. Install public

  • Remove roadblocks and identify ways to assist new businesses.

  • Ensure that reliable high speed fiber internet is available for

       business and residential use throughout the city.

Economic Questionaire -- Answers

Energy and Environment

Climate change is affecting Kentucky. Weather predictions are
for greater rainfall, higher temperatures, and more intense
storms. Planning is needed to protect residents and property.

  • Promote energy usage at non peak times to keep demand and

       electrical rates low.

  • Encourage the participation in the Home Energy Audits offered

       by the Frankfort Plant Board. Offer a City incentive for
       residents to make the improvements.

  • Legislation to inform future renters of the average energy cost

       of property at the same time as the monthly rent is listed. This
       would promote energy efficiency efforts by landlords.

  • Increase tree planting to shade houses, park benches, and make

       Frankfort more attractive.

  • Sponsor Community Solar projects.

  • Improve the efficiency of city cars and buses by replacing

       them with electric vehicles.

  • Encourage residents to purchase electric cars.
