Nez Perce county is being challenged with the over growing house prices, large number of homeless, mental illness, and surviving and staying strong though COVID-19. As a lifelong resident of the county and as the Treasurer I bear these burdens if it affects my office directly or indirectly. To survive, we all have to stand together and work together and have the openness to solve these challenges. It is not just one department or one elected official’s challenge, it is a county problem, and we must be team players.
To effectively address these challenges, I strongly believe in communication, education, knowledge, staying involved and learning approach. I’m open to imaginative and curious about new and inventive ways to solve problems. I have taken a strong approach to interactive communication, continuous education on our growth, and increase impact on legislation. I have attended or zoomed in on meetings about our homeless and mental illness that is impacting our county. Within my office I restructured our procedures to keep our office open and meeting the taxpayer’s needs through COVID-19.
I reap the benefits when I get to engage with the constituents of Nez Perce County. This is a great way to educate and learn from them. I make a strong effort to attend as many county and city meetings and functions within our communities. Being an accessible source of information, support and guidance is a vital element. I’m available and open to meet for any questions.
