David Strong’s campaign web site promotes this:
“During his first term as Mayor, David guided our city through the formation of a 10-year financial plan. Winter Park not only enjoys the highest level of service of any city in Orange County, it is the only city in Central Florida with a 10-year financial plan.”
David Strong is referring to the formulation of a 10 year financial projection (far from a plan) that was initiated, undertaken, and completed by City Commissioner Phil Anderson with the help of city staff.
What are they thinking? Or, are they thinking?
Our city would greatly benefit from a REAL PROCESS of a rolling 10 year plan with financial projections tied to strategic priorities. Unfortunately, nothing I have seen tells me that David Strong has any knowledge of or interest in doing such a thing. The only members of the City Commission who seem to grasp what is required are Phil Anderson and Karen Diebel.
