Council Candidate Ross Goldsmith releases his Good Government Game Plan for Gahanna


GAHANNA, OH - Gahanna City Council candidate Ross Goldsmith released his Good Government Game Plan for Gahanna this morning - vowing to provide a vision that brings everyone to the table. 

"The next decade will determine the future of growth and opportunity in Gahanna – we need an ambitious vision that supports our families, encourages investment in our infrastructure, and builds a community for all. We need a game plan," said Goldsmith. "Our strategy will put the welfare of our residents and our city at the heart of everything we do. It requires good ideas, good work, and good government."

The Goldsmith for Gahanna's Good Government Game Plan has three prongs and calls on the city to:

1. Envision A Better Future For Our Neighbors

2. Invest In Opportunity

3. Build A Community For All

Goldsmith called his game plan a necessary roadmap to help Gahanna as our region continues to grow - especially as the City struggles with communicating a basic vision to residents. "A basic tenet of good government, is meeting residents where they are. Our city needs to do better at getting information out - the days of sending three agendas and two newsletters on a Friday afternoon and calling it a week are over. Or they soon will be," said Goldsmith.
