We believe in the value of public policy to enhance the prosperity and quality of life of our residents. We also believe in the potential and power of the private sector and entrepreneurs to do the same.
The best solutions and greatest success occur when the strengths of the public and private sector are aligned and rowing in the same direction, and when public bodies balance parochial and regional needs. Business investments and policies must be crafted that better align with the larger vision for our region. At the same time, public investments in transportation, smart growth, affordable housing, economic development, technology, emergency preparedness, and sustainability need to be smarter, more creative, and more collaborative.
