My top priority as mayor would be what I call “Economic Renovation” (since renovation is what I do.) Most everyone knows just how much Deer Park has grown and is growing; not too many realize how much we have “shrunk”. Over the years, we have lost so many economic, recreation and entertainment commercial enterprises. A partial list includes hotels, 2 grocery stores, a bowling alley, a hospital, a skating rink, a movie theater, a drive-in theater, and much more. It would be my priority to encourage some of these enterprises to return – instead of progress, lets get to work regaining all we have lost.
