Core Issues


Below are 6 core issues that as a community we need to continue to address in the next four years to keep moving forward as a thriving and healthy city. 


The reasoning for dealing with these issues is very simple – it is the right thing to do.


To address and overcome these issues is right for the children of the community. To address and overcome these issues is right for the families living in the community, and it is right for the businesses in the community.  While we are not alone in dealing with the issues that affect us as every city and town in the country has things to overcome, but we are alone in working as a team to deal with them here in OUR community as we make Warsaw a better place for everyone.
