She is equally committed to utilizing modern tools and practices for sustainable economic development and smart growth.
To keep businesses competitive and neighborhoods attractive, Goshen needs state-of-the-art utilities, roads, waste systems, and parks. Goshen has some major infrastructure needs to tackle in the coming years. With a continued focus on our budget, we’ll be ready to face those challenges. As we pay attention to all types of infrastructure, we’ll need to pay particular attention to pedestrian transit. She wants to ensure that our neighborhoods, pathways, and sidewalks are safe for even our youngest commuters: our students.
Integrated Public Safety
When there’s an emergency, there’s nothing more important than first responders arriving with the proper training and equipment. Gina is committed to making regular investments in our public safety resources. Safety involves a network of support and partnerships, including social workers, police, firefighters, educators, and health care workers. Strong alliances between these safety teams are crucial to ensuring the health and well-being of everyone who lives here.
Community vibrancy, desirable and affordable housing, beautiful neighborhoods, and a sense of openness build pride and encourage all types of families to establish roots in our community.

Innovation and efficiency are necessary tools for delivering quality services to our community. She wants to lead with a focus on being customer-centered, efficient, and effective in our dealings with the public.
Preparing for environmental changes isn’t just a nicety – it’s an economic necessity for a sustainable community. Environmental disaster planning is imperative for our well-being. Gina takes seriously our City’s responsibility to care for our environment, to equip us to adapt to environmental changes, and to build resources for a sustainable community for future generations. To achieve this, we must also work to reduce our carbon footprint. We’ll lead by example, promoting sustainable practices in our city’s operations, from paper use to transportation to waste management.
