Trust in Free, Fair and Secure Elections, Financial Responsibility of Tax Dollars, and maintaining a Family Friendly community are challenges for Ada County. As Clerk, I will build trust in our elections process, I will audit all financial transactions within the county and monitor where every tax dollar is going, and as Clerk of the Courts will help maintain a family friendly community by ensuring access to all court services.
I have spent 20 years defending the Constitution of the U.S. as a fighter pilot in the Air Force. The last 4 years I have served as the Chief Deputy Clerk of the County. Both my leaderships skills I gained as a member of the military combined with my county experience will help me continue to serve the public in this critical role.
The county clerk will work with any and all organizations to help make the county a great place to live, work, and play. We will always serve the public in a way that builds trust in Government. I will use social media to keep the community informed of changes in elections, and I will make every piece of financial data possible available to the public through our website.
