If elected I would like to avoid tax increases, stimulate economic growth and infrastructure including rural broadband, explore initiatives to help foster greater pride and production from our many rural and urban communities.
Rush Township, where I am Supervisor, is one of only two municipalities in the county that has no local millage tax. By keeping our eyes on the horizon to stay ahead of issues we can then plan ahead and apply sound judgment which cuts costs. Studying best practices and applying them is critical as well.
Growth is important to creating jobs and increasing infrastructure to keep the rural areas connected to the larger markets so we can fill positions from within the county. None of this works if we don’t have the workforce to supply any incoming industry, so we need greater workforce training. We need long term initiatives to keep younger people active and away from issues such as drugs, unplanned pregnancy, and incarceration as these are the future of our labor force and I am “Focused On Our Future.”
