Public Safety will always be a priority for Marilyn, since over half the cities budget is spent on police, fire, and various emergency services. She will make sure these divisions are properly staffed, they have the tools they need, and the training to do their job. In addition, improving police-community relations will be an ongoing goal.
Marilyn will see that the neighborhoods in Ward 2 are maintained, and that children have access to sidewalks when walking to and from school. She will ensure development around neighborhoods is intentional so that each locality is provided with an easily accesible place to shop for groceries, get gas, obtain medical care and access public transportation.
Marilyn believes that a good education system is vital if we want to maintain a healthy economy. Oklahoma City needs strong local leadership working on innovative ways to improve our public education system.
