Mineral County deserves a leader that will reach out to the community (year-round and every single year) to gather ideas, garner support and galvanize the community to action. As your elected official, I would bring your voice to the table. I want to serve the Mineral County of today and plan for the Mineral County of tomorrow. One of the most pressing issues facing our community is the lack of affordable housing. Paired with that is a need for more year-round employment opportunities. I want to work within the community, every public and private entity, to find solutions to these problems. Lack of affordable housing is a state-wide issue but one that must be addressed on a local level first. Addressing these issues would allow our businesses to flourish, families to grow, students to have even more opportunities, and it would promote a diverse and sustainable community ready to tackle the future. I will work tirelessly to accomplish these tasks and serve this community I love.
I have an extensive background in business management and would use many of the same good business practices at the County. Keep expenses to a minimum, while maintaining excellent services. Determine your financial priorities and set goals. If there’s one thing we’ve all learned from the current economic situation, it’s the importance of having savings. That’s true for personal, business and government finances. The County is a business and YOU are the customer.
