Working for our community

As your next county commissioner, I will listen to your concerns, get rid of all the corruption in our government and bring back respect for the law.

I have the knowledge and experience to make a difference, on issues such as land use and conservation, transportation planning, education and workforce development. I believe we must innovate and utilize new technologies to serve our citizens better than ever before.
