I think we still have a ways to go with that. We do have economic development happening. It's important that we develop our good communication plan so that everybody at least feels updated with what's happening," said challenger, Natalie Peterson. "We're very mindful of our community We're very mindful of business. The importance of it. How we handle it. I am actually very confident in the staff that I work with and think that we do a very good job with it," said City Council member Gloria Nelson.
