The important local issues

Conservation initiatives about water

I am an advocate for conservation and committed to continuing the discussion about creating a sustainable source of water. I encourage water-wise decision-making in regard to future growth in Washington.

Strategic, planned growth

  • An impressive amount of good planning for growth has already taken place, we should understand that. Growth for Washington City is necessary. I want to put people’s minds at ease, understanding that future growth will propel Washington City to the forefront of Washington County.

  • Smart growth begins with good infrastructure. We should ensure that our roads are in good condition and that traffic lights are put in place to protect our citizens, especially youth. Additionally, we should ensure that our public services are properly equipped to meet the challenges associated with growth.

Small business intrinsic to economic development

My resume of supporting small businesses is what sets me apart from the other candidates. If you have a business in Washington City, I will do what I can to help your business thrive.​

  • The area around Exit 13 is likely to experience exponential growth. While I welcome the growth in this area, we should also take care to protect the nearby landscape and preserve our environment.

  • Economic Development, one of my strengths and what I do full-time for the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce, brings jobs, higher wages, and contributes to our tax base to help fund public services.

  • Equitable employment opportunities for all.
