Accessible and Accountable
For the past 16 years I have diligently served Crook County as a Commissioner, and I have prided myself on being available to the people. My phone is always on because I know my mission is to serve the citizens. I believe there is no room in county politics for self-serving motives.
Believes in the Future
I believe in conservative spending while continuing to provide essential services to the community. I believe growth is inevitable because we live in such a desirable place, but I think that growth can be structured. I believe that in the coming years Crook County will continue to change, and I want to use my experience and ideas to come up with solutions to the challenges we will face.
Continued Enhancements of our Community
While serving our community I have helped with the building of a new library, Powell Butte Community Center, and expansion of the Bowman Museum. I have worked to maintain a high level of service in our county's government including helping to increase the sustainability and profitability of the landfill. It has been a pleasure to work for the citizens of Crook County, and I would be honored to continue to serve.
