I have really enjoyed serving as your County Commissioner for the past three years and I would like to continue, so I am running for re-election this year! As of now, I am reactivating my campaign Facebook page, Website, and blog.
I helped create a community-based vision for the future, through the Thriving Communities 2040 project. Given the good economy and sound budgets we have enjoyed in Benton County for the past few years, we were able to invest in health department capacity and facilities. I hope that we will be able to invest in mental health and criminal justice capacity in my next term.
Unfortunately, as 2020 ramps up, we are facing completely new challenges. In the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, the County’s vision and values will not change, but our short-term priorities have shifted. For the foreseeable future, the County’s resources are focused on the health of our residents and supporting the local economy.
Please protect yourself and others from COVID-19 by practicing social distancing and regular hand washing during this time. I will be using my Facebook page and blog to provide local updates and recommendations. Thank you for supporting my campaign and stay safe!
