REPRESENTATION & RESPONSIBILITY TO CONSTITUENTS
First and foremost, I will work in the best interest of all the people in Clay County – not just a few. The people in our community deserve someone who will listen to them and work for them.
Every Clay County resident deserves to live in a safe environment. That requires public safety departments (including Clay County Sheriff’s Dept.) have adequate funding to serve and protect the communities within Clay County. I will work to ensure that such departments receive the necessary funding to have adequate staffing and community policing programs.
I will work to ensure a fair and affordable approach to quality education opportunities from public schools, technical programs, community college and universities within Clay County.
INCREASED ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY AND EQUITY
I will support policies which protect and invest in workers, raise the minimum wage to a living wage, improve infrastructure through private and public investments.
RELIABLE AND RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT
I believe that government should work to meet the needs of the people and the commission’s efforts should be reliable, transparent and revenues should be collected in a fair and responsible manner.
I will support creating revenue in order to restore proper funding levels and by reinvesting in our future with responsible and disciplined policies. We need to insist on proper funding for county services.
I will support helping protect our environment. I will support more options for clean and renewable energy in our county, including solar, wind and other energy efficiency programs.
