Itâ€™s not how I see the city in the future, but rather how the citizens see it. What Ashland needs is to revisit and renew its vision for itself. Through extensive and diverse involvement with the entire community, I will use all the tools for community visioning necessary, including identifying community issues and analyzing emerging trends, articulating core community values, creating a vision statement and developing strategic action plans in an effort to make this a reality. Itâ€™s been nearly 20 years since we lasted sat down as a community and decided where it was we wanted to go. Itâ€™s time to do so again.
