THe H.E.L.P Plan


I believe access to healthcare should be a top priority, and as Commissioner I will work strategically with community partners to close access gaps. Mental health, in particular, is a huge area of need. County government should be a partner in leading the effort to build health care infrastructure. 


Educators and staff in the school system are often wearing several different hats–all at once. We’ve seen in recent years how the education system is questioned and their funding threatened by the Commissioners. There’s a better way to do things.

Land use

I am passionate about development and land use because I believe that smart growth is key to preserving our county’s rural nature. We’ve experienced an influx of convenience stores and industrial development while vacant buildings sit empty for years.

public safety

Public safety is essential to a strong community. We want to live and work where we feel safe. Police everywhere are overburdened, just like educators. Our EMS system is experiencing a profound change. We need to plan for the future, and that means being proactive.  


I am deeply grateful for any and all support for this campaign.
