Lead efforts in securing funding for TH65 - It's no longer acceptable to have faith that our elected officials are going fix the most dangerous and deadly intersection in the seven county metro. Make fiscally responsible decisions while maintaining quality services - I take this very seriously and have always ensured that the funds received from taxpayers are spent responsibly and with transparency. I make decisions that continue to keep services at a high level, while keeping spending lean. Promote smart business growth and development - The County plays a pivotal role in supporting the growth and development of local business. I plan to revitalize this support with all entities involved with the County's Regional Economic Development.
Housing and affordability, or lack thereof, is something that I have spent the past 10 years learning about and working towards solutions. It is an incredibly complex issue that all elected officials (from city to federal) should prioritize together. At a county level, quality wrap-around services must be made available for those who are or are at risk of losing their housing. The way to do this is to become a true partner with local non-profits that have the expertise.
We need to ensure that there are as few barriers to voting as possible. Voting is an essential part of our democracy in which all voices can be heard. The state sets the laws and over the years, I've developed strong relationships with local legislators, which I will use in advocating those laws be changed.
Mental health must be designated as a public health crisis and given the attention it desperately requires. The extreme result of COVID is death. The extreme result of mental illness is suicide. We have to accept that we've been in another pandemic far longer then with COVID. I've seen, through efforts with Veterans and Youth homelessness, what radical changes can be made when everyone comes together with solutions that are laser-focused on the problem.
Overall, making hard budgetary decisions during a struggling economy is very difficult. During the early months of COVID shutdown, our priority was to ensure the communities health and safety. At the County level, I would continue those priorities and support of public safety (sheriff, dispatch, corrections), and human services (economic assistance, public health, and Job Training Center). I will also prioritize building up reserves, so fewer cuts would need to be made.
