Tozer said she wants local government to function for residents and not as a breeding ground for politicians to run for higher office. She said the city has to address taxes, which have increased during the past six years. She is proposing a freeze on taxes and to have the City Council approve budgets based on the comprehensive plan, which was tabled in March. She said she is opposed to outside developers going for tax abatements. Tozer said she wants to make Long Beach affordable for workers and residents who can’t afford to live there. She said the city needs a master plan for traffic and the business district. Tozer said she wants to make government transparent and consider environmental impacts.
