Fiscal responsibility and proper management have led to 4 out of the last 5 years with no property tax increase. Allan will continue to protect the city's finances and keep taxes under control.
With over $66 million dollars in business developments, many new businesses ranging from small family-owned to large high-tech facilities, Cranston is proud of the strong business environment it fosters.
Allan believes safer roads and bridges are a must- and to do this he is advocating for a bond referendum targeted at investing $20 million into infrastructure improvements. Thanks to the strong financial environment of Cranston, all three major credit rating agencies (Moody's, Standard & Poor's, and Fitch) have upgraded the city's bond rating to the highest point in decades. This allows the city to borrow funds at a more affordable rate, which is why now is the ideal time to make these necessary improvements.
As the Chief Executive of Cranston, Allan's number one goal is securing the future for the city's next generation. By restructuring debt, advocating for school sports and music programs, and investing in the infrastructure of the schools, Allan has protected and improved the caliber of education our student's are receiving.
