"I believe in common sense and innovative ways to save cost and solve the problems.
We must be willing to accept change. We must work together hand in hand with all
governing bodies such as cities, board of education as well as other counties etc.
Problems and issues do not stop are start at the boundary lines. We must work together
to save cost and work toward common goals for us and our region. I feel that economic
development is one of our most important issues facing us today. We can create an
environment that supports job growth."
