When asked by the Daily Herald to identify the most important thing he hopes the community can accomplish in 2020, Mayor Kaptain responded “Our greatest successes happen when we plan for the long-term needs of our community.

From our youngest students to those ready for a career, we are all working hard to set up our future generations for success.”
