What do you see as the top three issues in this race?                                                                                    Economic development, growth management, maintaining and improving infrastructure

How can you help voters in a way that others running for this office cannot?                                                         I have 43 years of experience managing a business and working thru budget and employee issues. I understand the needs and concerns of the taxpayer as I am one. I believe widening the tax base thru smart growth and economic development will reduce the future burden on residential taxes. I will continue to be a conservative and work to lower our counties debt as I did during my first term. The BOCC has completed a 911 call center and are a few months away from completing a new Sheriffs Administration Building both debt free. I was selected to spearhead these two projects because of my business background. Both projects are under budget to date.

What would you hope to be remembered for accomplishing after serving in this office?

Political experience: None

What do you see as the top three issues in this race?                                                                                                1. Taxes                                                                                                                                                                                      2. Spending                                                                                                                                                                               3. Government/Corporate Cronyism

How can you help voters in a way that others running for this office cannot?                                                        By standing firm on our current tax rates and saying NO to new taxes. In addition, I will find ways to reign in out of control spending and say no to corporations soliciting lucrative tax incentives which work against the interests of our citizens.

What would you hope to be remembered for accomplishing after serving in this office?                              That I am a man of my word. In other, I mean what I say and I say what I mean!
