I aim to call all of my constituents and have a conversation with them about the issues that are important to them. I will talk to them about how to register to vote online and the importance of voting. I will explain to them how to apply for an absentee ballot if they are afraid or unable to reach the polls. I will ask them to get involved in whatever way they are able, great or small. I will explain to them that they can make a difference and express the importance of their vote. If the pandemic eases I will knock on their doors and meet them where they are to have the same conversations.
I will ask my constituents for the problems they see and what solutions they can imagine resolving these problems. I already have spoken to 10% of my voters and it seems bringing in jobs is at the top of their list. If this trend continues I will seek employers that would have the kind of businesses that would thrive in our area without damaging our way of life & try to make our communities seem attractive to them. If we can get widespread,reliable, affordable broadband access here there are many remote jobs to be had right now. I would encourage those with vision and special skills to be their own employers when possible. I would encourage all residents to support their local businesses, especially the small ones.
