What I personally liked about Madera was the community spirit everyone had and how they would all come together as one to support each other. One thing I would like to see change is the safety, a lot of the times I would hear a lot of people talking about how much criminal activity there is in Madera.

I love that the activities in the schools are able to help out the community and get individuals a head start. One thing I feel that can be improved on is getting people more involved in the community. Having more events for people to sign up and volunteer.
Madera County is a city were everyone can express their beliefs. The change I would like for my city would be to give more water to the agriculture industry. Therefore, creating more jobs for our community.
