I love Madison County.
We’ve got a rich and proud past, natural beauty, vibrant businesses, fertile soil, and a promising future — if we grow wisely. I want to be a part of a proactive board that will take us into the future without sacrificing the qualities that make us great.
I want to see us address less visible problems – mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, the needs of the poor and elderly, and outdated infrastructure, including our emergency medical facilities.
Let’s see how we can make our county efficient and responsive to the needs of our taxpayers, while managing the growth coming our way.
Specifically, I commit to careful consideration of…
- the best use of the new annex building with services to citizens as the most important core consideration.
- a new facility for first responders, ambulances, and senior meal site as soon as possible.
- updating the comprehensive plan to be consistent with a wise vision for development all over the county, particularly the northeast corner.
- additional important issues, as stated here.
County government can be inefficient. It’s impossible for just one person, or even the board of supervisors, to do things alone — and that’s good for the taxpayer. It keeps decisions cautious and careful. However, with eyes wide open, I can use my role as a supervisor to push for action while developing the right working relationships with city governments, county boards and commissions, schools, economic development, and our citizens to do the right things for Madison County.
Together, we can keep Madison County a great place to
live, work, and play.
