We need to address a challenged economy in a brittle ecosystem, protect our precious resources, namely water, and improve the physical and financial health of our people. Through collaborative efforts between our cities and county, as well as the with the communities of our six county rural region, we can strengthen the voice of our county at the state level. By encouraging the creation of value added enterprises, we can maximize our local income from what we produce locally, including solar energy and agricultural products. Bolstering our local food economy would not only benefit our financial health and protect the future of family farms, it would provide us with a local source of highly nutritious food, thus improving our physical well-being.
Making careful assessment of our issues, determining root causes, and determining the most provident use of resources to address them. The guide for decisions should be always keeping in mind what is best for our land and animals, our people, and our economy.
