Our community is changing quickly, and we need the expertise and experience to embrace that growth in a healthy, economically, and responsible way. I believe that elected officials should listen to the needs and desires of the community, and work to make their community's goals a reality.
I will be responsible with your tax dollars and protect the services and programs that make our community function. I will advocate for you and your family by keeping transportation safe, taxes low, educational opportunities available, and our green spaces open and accessible.
Economic Development and Growth - District 2 is undeveloped and we need to make sure that growth is done in a smart way that represents us responsibly. I will work to ensure that no business, industry, or homeowner pays more than their fair share of the county budget.
Workforce Development - Connecting business and communities is vital for growth and long-term success. I have the experience needed to develop solutions to the barriers between business, community, education, and employees. A vital part to workforce development is supporting transportation systems that work for all of us since it is transportation that connects us to our jobs, schools, places of recreation, places of worship, and homes.
Transparency and Responsible County Management - Our county government should work for us! I will advocate for open communication between the community and the county board, including an open forum during meetings. I understand the importance of an open bid process for county projects to ensure that we are receiving the best possible price for the work that needs to be done to grow our county. I understand what it’s like to raise a family on a tight budget, that is why I vow to be a responsible steward of your tax dollars. This means fair project bids, open hiring practices, an open forum during meetings, and keeping my office door open to you will be my top priorities!
