Acacia District City Council candidates — in their own words

Jason Dragon
Acacia District
City Council candidate

The city of Peoria is growing quickly, and the decisions that we make today will be felt for generations to come. We need to guide development to make the city into the place we want it to be tomorrow.
I am Jason Dragon, and I am running for City Council. I am a proud husband, and a father of three great boys. I am the owner of Emerald Computers and Arizona Computer Recycling, and I am also a Realtor. I want to be the next councilperson from the Acacia District. I am the candidate who offers optimism and the entrepreneurial spirit to the city. I see things the way they can be, and I strive to obtain the benefits of those positive and creative changes.
I see Peoria as a place full of potential; it is good now but can be really great if the right decisions are put in place. We need to fix downtown once and for all and revitalize it like Phoenix, Scottsdale and Glendale have done. We need to make it easier to start and grow a business in Peoria; small business owners are the heartbeat of any city, creating places to work, shop and live.
We need to spur interest in building denser housing in specific areas, the type of housing that most people under the age of 30 prefer to live in. We need to do all of this while preserving and celebrating our history and trimming the waste in the budget. 
All of this wraps into a philosophy that I call “Business Minded Leadership,” something that I will apply to my decisions on the council.
We need to take advantage of the assets we have to their fullest.
