My Top 3 Priorities

  • Property taxes - We can not increase property taxes and need to hold the line
  • Making government more efficient - using my 27 years of county experience to help streamline services to save taxpayer money
  • Pro-actively addressing road and capital needs of the County - without raising taxes
