Government professionalism, integrity and efficiency. Solid working relationships with all of Delaware County’s elected officials and leaders. Keeping our taxes low, our community safe, and our infrastructure sound. Promoting the private sector’s creation of well-paying jobs, workforce housing and broadband access. Expanding and improving our public transportation system. Promoting sound residential and commercial development that respects our green spaces and waterways. Being actively mindful of the needs of our community’s less fortunate. Collaborating openly and honestly with others.
I am ensuring thoughtful, informed and transparent long-term planning that includes all the public and private stakeholders in the community. I then objectively consider and fairly balance the various competing interests to achieve an outcome that is best for the overall community. All of this with special focus on the impacts and opportunities arising from Intel's massive new development in neighboring Licking County.
We need more convenient, available and affordable public transportation for everyone in Delaware County and also better inter-county transportation with Franklin County, where much of our workforce resides. All this must be done via Delaware County Transit, whose board is appointed by the Delaware County Commissioners. Our recent new appointments to the DCT board and their hiring of a new executive director are positive steps forward.
The person's desire to serve. Sincerity of purpose. Previous experience, performance, expertise and educational background in the pertinent field. Reputation for personal honesty and integrity. Positive recommendations and references. Ability to lead and work well in groups. Passion and willingness to advocate for the board's mission. Availability and commitment to devote the time necessary to be an informed, active and valuable board member. And, considering the board as a whole, how the appointee would add strength, balance, value and diversity to the current leadership team.
