"As a community servant and your next County Commissioner, my role will be to set policy; in other words, pass resolutions to establish policy for your county government. Secondly I will do legislative oversight and peak over the shoulder of our administrators to insure your tax dollars are funding county programs effectively. Next I will listen to your problems and concerns with county agencies, cut out the red tape, and get you service or information you deserve. And as a final point, I will provide you with a balanced budget that is cost effective and focused on the future."
