I’m Rico Rodriguez.
I’m not into politics,
I am into public service.
Starting October 22nd ( Early Voting) and through November 6th, 2018 YOU have the opportunity to direct the future of our #HomesweetHuntsville.
Here are a few things I believe we could improve in our hometown.
Improve communication between the five governmental entities that make up Walker County.
o School District
o Hospital District
o Create a board where entities meet at least twice a year
o Sub-board where members can meet at least quarterly to discuss goals and future happenings.
o Create cohesiveness among the entities.
Implement technology to ensure the city stays one step ahead of the growth. “Future proofing.” This will help minimize the traffic issues.
o Development of a transportation master plan to improve the traffic flow as the city grows.
o For example a Bike/Scooter lane
Sustainable growth. Making sure the city stays financially responsible to the citizens and focusing on keeping the city at the forefront of using grants to bring tax dollars back to the city.
My wife and I believe in our city’s bright future. Huntsville’s deep historical roots, neighborhoods, park system, diversity, and arts community are just a few of the attractive qualities that continue to attract new neighbors and make other return home. We must remain focused on maintaining the quality of life at the lowest possible cost to our citizens.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
I am a Proud Bearkat Alum, Family man, small business owner. I believe that hard work and a clear vision are the only determining factors to success.
Huntsville can continue to be a great place to live and raise a family as we grow. As your Councilman, I will do everything I can to make sure that it does.
