  • I have asked the county to look into the amount of money we spend cutting grass.  (300K last year!)  I believe we are wasting resources, polluting our air and shortchanging pollinators.  Currently our Storm Water management is looking at sustainable substitutions for turf.

  • I am continuing to work on my campaign issue of building a tiny house village.  I am looking to work with the Sheriff in a bi-partisan effort to offer housing for low level offenders, released after work training, to be able to continue on their road to becoming contributing members of our community.
