Secure Elections, voters need to be assured that we are doing our best to insure elections are fair and honest. Responsible taxation, we need to make sure we are spending tax dollars responsibly. Continue to explore ways to fund a new court house, because the need is great and this project has to be completed in a manner that is acceptable to the tax payers.
We have agencies that work with state and local authorities on this problem. We listen to what they bring to meetings and act on what is best for each situation.
Ensuring safe and secure elections should foremost on every ones mind. How we do this has raised a lot of debate. We need to work with the state legislature to ensure elections are not tampered with and every one that is eligible to vote can, and to make sure those votes are not tampered with.
With the economic issues stemming from inflation, the pandemic, and the stress involved with the agriculture industry it is important that we stay ahead of the increasing workload on these services. We will continue to work with the very talented people who work with these groups now and try to provide the help needed to continue this work.
As I have not had a chance to sit in on budgeting meetings yet I look forward to the challenge of providing needed services with the funding at our disposal. All of the services that our employees provide are essential. Providing care for our elderly is very important as well as maintaining the infrastructure in the county. Health care and feeding the needy are also important. Budgets and resulting restrictions can be hard to live with, but with proper planning the need for cuts can be limited.
