Rural Economy – with increased living costs, we need to ensure that local government does not add to financial burdens and is a voice for all our county members.

Watershed maintenance and long-term planning – it is no secret that water is essential for human life; however, in a rural economy that depends on adequate water for crop development and livestock care and maintenance, water directly supports our livelihood.

CO2 Summit Pipeline: In a rural economy, soil maintenance is vital to successful crop production; therefore, asking the difficult questions and listening to our farmers that will be affected by the pipeline is essential to the community. Also providing effective public safety response to an incident is vital.
To know what we need for housing in our county/communities, we need to assess the current status of existing housing. Sub-standard housing that continues to deteriorate is not acceptable living conditions for our residents. We also must evaluate the type of housing needed, such as town homes for our seniors that wish to down-size but continue to live on their own.
One person, one vote! We must ensure that we protect the constitutional right to vote for every individual in Jackson County and that the election process reflects the strong values of our county.
Every person is essential and needs to be recognized for their value to our community; therefore, we must recognize that behavioral health and services must be tailored to the individual. I initiated an activity in my rural community entitled "Bursting the Mental Health Stigma" that (Stigma) prevents members of our county from seeking assistance or talking to a trusted family member or friend. This event broke the ice and started conversations.
Areas that provide success in commerce, transportation, safety, and health would be prioritized. We must be able to move our locally produced products to market with health workers in a safe environment to be efficient and effective in maintaining our quality of life.
