Listening & Leading
WHY I AM RUNNING:
I am running to continue producing results for the hard-working people of Jackson County. Since taking office, I have been an outspoken leader for families, seniors, workers and children. The economy is improving, and the unemployment rate is at the lowest points in more than 10 years, but many people are still struggling, and there’s more work to do. As our state continues to move in a positive direction, we must rely on common sense solutions, and we cannot repeat the failed polices of the past that killed jobs and ruined our economy.
In my first term, we achieved meaningful tax relief for families; record-level funding for Jackson County classrooms; more skilled trades opportunities; the most funding ever to fix roads; solutions to help protect benefits for teachers and first responders; the elimination of unfair driver responsibility fees so people can get back on the road and back on their feet; and a balanced budget that prioritizes spending better and pays down debt.
In addition to jobs and career training, my focus going forward includes lowering income taxes for workers, making car insurance more affordable, protecting school funding, and applying freedom of information laws to the Legislature and governor. For me, public service is not about Republicans or Democrats – it is about finding meaningful solutions to the issues we all care about.
Coming into this position, I made a commitment to never forget the people I serve. I believe that government needs to be more accountable and that’s why I make every effort to listen, stay accessible and explain my votes. I would be honored to continue serving you and our Jackson community.
