As a business owner in the county, one of my priorities is passive, but it is by being accessible. Being able to be contacted readily with concerns is my biggest want.

I enjoy working with budgets, I'm anxious to be able to take a look at what we can do to make the most of the revenue in the county.

Finally, I would like to look into taking better care of our roads. As others expressed concern in the past, county and township roads connect us all and having them in prime condition is important.
In how this applies, I'd inquire with the three primary towns in this district to see what could be done to help them with their housing needs and upcoming projects and where we could help most in assisting those looking for housing.
In how this applies and given the size of District 4, several stations are mail in where a few provide in person voting. Being a smaller district, I'm familiar with many of the voting centers and those that facilitate them. I already have the confidence that they do an outstanding job at handling the volume on election day.
I'll have to admit, this would be a weak part of my knowledge. I would lean on the professionals already in place and take their lead on what the needs are and how to move forward in the most efficient way.
In looking at the county as a whole, small counties struggle with continuing to provide as many services as possible. Unfortunately, budget cuts are a part of each fiscal planning. Safety and security, ie. sheriffs dept. are important to me as well as being able to provide the professional services from the courthouse. These would be a top priority as well as ensuring we had adequate funds to keep our roads maintained and safe for travel.
