2013 was as expected.  With a "SUPER MAJORITY" Council, we change the direction of the City.  Lowered Electric rates a second time, and working to lower them again a Third Time.  Stood up to special interests and business's that wanted to come to town, to take advantage of the people.  We voted them out of town and the People of the City are finally the winners.  The Senior Housing that I never gave up on putting in it's orgiginal location is almost completed, and our loved ones can move back home.  Relationships with Business's, Employee's and the residents of Colton are coming together.  We are slowly becoming the Best Town in the Inland Empire, where everyone wants to.
