Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

 

  1. I will work toward lowering high property taxes that are becoming a critical part of taxpayer’s monthly expense.  These high property taxes are a burden to our citizens that have worked their entire life paying for their home and now it becomes challenging to budget monthly in order to be able to remain in them.  I will also work to support existing business in the County and ensure we retain them as well as work on programs that will attract new business to Madison County.  We need to do whatever is necessary to protect the jobs that are here currently and put a stop to small and large business owners moving out of Madison County at such a tremendous rate.  I will bring insight to the Board that will offer experience with budgeting and ensure money is spent wisely on necessary services provided by the County.
