My Top 3 Priorities

  • Maintain fiscal responsibility, reviewing current policies and elimating what does not work, reinforcing what does work for fellow residents
  • Reduce, elimate homeless working closely with state and federal leaders to lower requirements for homeless to receive low-interest loans, for those who qualify.
  • Advocate career-level jobs, education programs for high school and adult learners for those families reentering the workforce due to life-changing situations.
