Currituck County is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners, elected at-large in county-wide elections to serve four-year staggered terms. Five members must reside in specified districts, and two members are elected at-large. The Board elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman at its December meeting.

We must manage our explosive growth in northern part of the county using tools like phasing and minimum lot sizing. We must utilize these tools until our facilities, especially our school capacities, can keep up with this growth. To diversify our tax base, we must also expand our infrastructure throughout the county to attract businesses and thereby keep property taxes low.
Working with our Board of Education, College of the Albemarle and other educational entities in the region will ensure our schools are funded, maintained and functioning at a high level to prepare our children to be successful adults and to make Currituck County more competitive in attracting thriving businesses. Creating opportunities for our children to volunteer, intern, work and participate in extracurricular activities will make our students more competitive in college admissions and in the workforce.
Expanding & improving our county infrastructure, including access to broadband, our sewer capacity & solving storm water and drainage issues, will attract businesses to Currituck County. Diversifying our tax base will keep property taxes low, which is one reason for our residential growth. Funding our schools and educational systems will produce a quality workforce and will help make Currituck County a great place to locate new businesses.
Sitting on the Northern Region Trillium Board has allowed me to connect our DSS with more mental health services, to help expand our child and adult protective services, and to work with private groups to expand health care to our county's isolated areas. Connecting our citizens regionally is the only way to ensure that our citizens have access to these services. If elected, I will continue to work within the region, to partner with our senior centers and department of social services to improve access to quality social services in our county.
