Residents for Reform was started for a simple reason – our local government has become too expensive. Our mission is to return fiscal responsibility to City Hall. They are good people that have lost their way. In the past decade the city council has incurred over $571 million in long-term debt for a city of just 87,000. In ten years our politicians have burdened taxpayers with more debt than the first 90 years of the city’s existence. It’s time for a change.
