Hi there, I'm Anne Little Roberts,
I want to lead the growing city of Meridian and represent our citizens.
The impact that our rapid growth has had on our police and fire departments is unprecedented. We currently have 114 sworn police officers and 37 non-sworn with at least 20 more sworn officers needed in the next year to keep up with our current levels of service to our citizens.
Because of Meridian’s unprecedented growth, I think many people are assuming the growth brings prosperity, and in many cases it does. But, we have got to be strategic in the businesses we attract and how we help our small businesses. Small business is the backbone of our economy.
As this valley grows, it becomes even more critical for our city to be communicating well not only with partners within our city - but the partners in surrounding communities.
