Economic Development for Saunders County is protecting our valuable farmland and recognizing growth in areas around the communities. We are a Livestock Friendly County and recognize the value of integrating through well managed Planning and Zoning Regulations.
My priorities for extreme weather events is first of all protecting individuals and keeping them safe. Maintaining roads for travel whether it be for emergency vehicles or families moving themselves or livestock. Having a good Emergency Manager and Plan and volunteers with our Local Fire and Rescue. In this Pandemic of Covid 19, it is our Health Departments and medical staff and facilities that are on the front lines. And always our volunteers
Taxes are the highest priority. Valuations limits are set by state but the County tries to keep them at a level that is equalized. We have lowered our tax asking dollar for at least the last 6 years. Maintaining budgets so county dollars are spent wisely. Providing adequate dollars for our employees to continue the services offered to our citizens. Services are what we offer our citizens and we want to do our best.
I am the best candidate for County Supervisor in District 2 because of my experience and leadership ability. I am dedicated. I am Chair of the County Board and also Chair of the NIRMA Board of Directors. NIRMA is our Risk Management Insurance Pool for all counties in Nebraska for Liability and Workers Compensation. My involvement on both the county and state level provides me with the opportunity to reach out to others for networking and valuable information. I am on the Region V Board, a 16 county organization which is for Developmental Disabilities, Mental Health and Substance Abuse. I have been Chair for this Board for 14 years and continue on the Executive Board. I have been President of the Nebraska Association of Counties and served on the National Association of Counties Board. I have worked tirelessly for Saunders County whether for our new Hospital or Law Enforcement Center or our Senior Citizens or Youth and I am ready to continue serving the citizens of our County.
