Why did you decide to
run for this office? I love living
here and we need a person with strong leadership and previous experience
working for county government to continue making this county the best place to
live. We need to bring our county together by listening to and representing the
citizens and business owners in all areas of our county. I am retired and have
the time, skill and desire to be active and make a positive difference in our
county on the behalf of all its citizens. I
want to step-up and contribute at the next level.
What is your top goal
if you are elected? “Smart Growth
for a Strong Future”! I consider the
most pressing issue is to balance safety, business, jobs, housing growth and
improvements of our county's infrastructures in a timely manner; to make it a
place people and business owners of all age groups can work and live in, and to
provide the best quality of life possible.
