KEEPING FAMILIES SAFE
Everyone, in the Village deserves to live in a safe neighborhood where they can raise their family. Our Village is fortunate to have Police Chief Charles “Chuck” Mackin at the helm, who oversees a highly qualified and professional police department. I’m 100% behind the men and women in Blue and will ensure we have the resources and services in place s to protect our neighborhoods.
As Mayor, I will preserve small town family-friendly community that my children grew up in. New Baden is growing, but sound policies can keep our close-knit culture. I will lead the council to spend wisely and invest in key growth sectors. I will support a balanced budget and sound fiscal policies to help reduce our property taxes and the growing sewer bill.
PROTECT OUR VALUES
We must invest in our roads, sidewalks, parks and basic city services that attribute to our quality of life. I support building sidewalks for our children to have safe means to walk and/or bike to school. I will encourage business development to help alleviate tax burdens on our New Baden citizens, letting them keep more of their own money so they can invest in their families.
SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESS
Our local businesses have been hurt by the response to the pandemic. We must look at local regulations and policies that will help grow our local economy and provide jobs for our community. As we grow the commercial tax base, we can lower the tax burden on residential property. The Village of New Baden can become a launching point for business incubation.
