RESTRUCTURING A BETTER LA VERNE
La Verne’s Future, First is a path that cannot move forward without a broader focus on community as a whole. Progression is the future, yet the current leadership continues to focus its time and energy on single issue problems like street widening or generalities like ‘quality of life’. While these discussions are important, an individualistic process is far too narrow to truly prepare La Verne for its bright future. As mayor, I, Zach Gibson will address a broad range of issues under the mentality of intersection – how each piece of legislation, each singular issue or measure is linked and intertwined to each other, finding solutions within the junctions of our communities issues. “Future, First” represents a united city government that is focused on the overall picture, the whole fabric instead of just the threads, while also making intelligent and progressive changes that don’t require micromanagement from an outdated and out of touch system.
