I believe that we should be sticking to our comprehensive plan and slowing residential growth. We should be working to encourage more small businesses to start or relocate in Goochland. We have the highest business property taxes of the surrounding counties. This prevents businesses from choosing Goochland.
Being a largely rural county without mass transit, we rely on our roads for all transportation needs. We need to make sure our roads are being maintained and that any issues that residents bring to the attention of their supervisor are documented and brought to the attention of VDOT.
We have a serious affordable housing issue in Goochland. Most of the houses in Goochland are above the price point for the county’s workforce (teachers, deputies, fire & rescue, etc). I support using the comprehensive plan to request that builders factor in workforce housing when planning new developments.
I love our county and I believe that we can do better. If elected I will prioritize:

Universal Broadband Access for all unserved areas of the county.

Equal Fire and Rescue response times and results for all districts.

Support and expand our excellent public schools.

We need to protect our farmland and the county’s rural nature. Our current Board of Supervisors unanimously approves virtually all large developments that appear before them. I will fight to keep Goochland truly rural.
