Last May, City Hall approved a nearly $5 billion budget with a $114 million deficit. While the City utilized a one-time revenue source to cover this deficit, this lack of a structurally balanced budget points to a lack of strategic focus. Expenses have outpaced revenue. The City should prioritize and strategically focus on its core services - as each of us must do in our own lives. Serving on the HISD Board, I saw more challenging budgets each year, but due to strategic focus and proven leadership, achievement levels and graduation rates increased. I will bring business sense and experience to help focus on the priorities facing the City.
