TRANSPARENCy. responsibility. community.
I will work to help Lake County become a beacon of transparency by continuing to improve ethics rules, goal-setting and oversight.
I will be honest and transparent about how we're going to spend your tax dollars.
I will support the continued video recording and broadcasting of Lake County Board meetings and additional efforts to make the county board more transparent.
I will fight to make as many documents as possible publicly accessible on our county websites.
I will hold regular office hours so you know when and where to find me when you have questions.
As we look to redistrict the county in 2021, I will fight for a fair map that respects community boundaries and makes sense to residents.
If we don't need the money, I will push to return it to taxpayers.
Our state's unfunded pension liability is one of the main contributors to its financial instability. Our leaders should step up to help save money for the state’s full-time workers. As your County Board member, I will never take a government pension.
I support the current Lake County Board's plan to look for ways to reduce our county's carbon footprint by creating green energy jobs and saving taxpayer money.
I will work with our county's Stormwater Management Commission to address the increase in flooding across Lake County.
Improving Roads and Infrastructure
Our infrastructure is a vital foundation of the economic health of Lake County. We need to implement a coherent plan to improve and expand existing roads and bridges while maintaining the protection of our environment. Such a plan must also account for the infrastructure needs of the future.
Smart Economic Development
We need a comprehensive plan to bring economic development and with a focus on areas in the county that have lost jobs. Coordinating with municipalities will serve to attract new employers throughout the county.
I promise to meet regularly with local leaders to gain an understanding of the issues we face together and to collaborate with them to serve our community.
Funding for Veterans
I look forward to working with my fellow County Board Members to improve funding for our 37,000 Lake County veterans by supporting the Veteran’s Assistance Commission. They did their part; now we need to do ours.
I look forward to working with my fellow board members to help people get the mental health and substance abuse treatment they need by supporting the creation of a Mental Health Crisis Drop-off Center.
