As candidate I have a simple message. I’m running to make your tax dollars and your voice go further. The current commissioners ran on fiscal responsibility, yet raised your taxes. They found money to give themselves a raise and they found $40 million for an unnecessary county administration building. Yet our teachers are behind on their steps, our school safety hasn’t been properly prioritized, our land isn’t being preserved, and the opioid crisis isn’t being significantly addressed. They did all this while they hide from the public by holding their legislative meetings on Tuesdays at 10am when many of our residents are working and by disallowing Q&A at public hearings. We deserve so much better out of our local government.
