“I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and get to work with the Council and Mayor Ralph to tackle the tough issues facing our City. The City can’t tackle the fiscal cliff alone. We have to continue to have open, productive dialog with our residents and our regional and state partners in order to generate new ideas and fresh thinking,” Marli said. “I want to make sure our economic development is smart, fair and balances the needs of both our business community and our families.”
