safety for families
As the councilman for Southpark Mall, and the Chair of Public Safety Committee, Gordon is working tirelessly with Strongsville's Director of Public Safety and police department to ensure the city is being proactive in security for the mall to protect Strongsville citizens and the city from the problems happening at other area malls. Gordon is supportive of efforts to update technology of our police and fire staffs to ensure superior protection for our citizens.
In supporting an open and transparent government, Gordon achieved fiscal transparency for Strongsville residents by publishing the city financials on the city’s website. All residents can easily review city revenue and expenditure detail. This is in part of an overall CPA-style top to bottom review of the city finances so that residents can see higher returns on city spending.
Many of our residents encounter frustrating circumstances around an aging infrastructure. From basement flooding to traffic flow, Gordon continues to balance between appropriate spending and better infrastructure for our community.
