I think economic growth is important for the county with the current financial situation. We need to make sure Gage County stays competitive. One way to do this is to keep developing and maintaining our highway system because the economy grows around good infrastructure. We have been doing great at that in the past and need to continue to develop in the future. I support what NGage is currently doing to further drive economic development. I think we need to look at zoning requirements and make sure we are doing all we can to ensure that Gage County continues to grow.

I am a proponent of setbacks because it gives residents the opportunity to educate themselves and the choice of whether or not they want the impacts of wind turbines on their property. I want to give our communities the right to choose what is right for them. I would also like to make sure and look at rock/gravel options across the county to see if there is a way to keep/make the roads we have in better conditions. Finally, reducing spending. I'd like to look continuously at ways that will save the county dollars and help relieve the impact of Beatrice 6. Sometimes cheaper isn’t always the best option and I understand that. Cutting costs is good but not at expense of quality outcome to the taxpayer.
I grew up on a farm outside of Clatonia. As a Gage County native, I cherish our community ties and values. After getting my Bachelor’s in Animal Science from UNL, I moved back to where I grew up and started a family with my husband, Justin. My family is committed to a life of farming and livestock where financial management is key to success. Along with farming, we own and operate Haxby Welding and Fabrication. I feel that I have good roots in the community, I understand the challenges faced by Gage County, and I’m invested in creating a better future by representing you as District 2 County Supervisor with bringing fresh, new ideas to the board.
