LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Posted October 18, 2018

 

Dear Editor:

 

Since January, I have been walking door to door finding out what’s most important to my neighbors. If elected, I will continue listening and will voice those priorities on the DeWitt County Board. 


Some of the issues that I’ve heard are important include: fiscal conservatism, transparency, and the local economy. 


First, I believe we can cut taxes, hold the line on spending, and make county government more efficient. I have an Accounting degree and am excited to bring that skill set to the Board. Transparency is another key issue I’ve heard from my neighbors. We must hold all levels of government accountable for how our tax dollars are spent. And finally, we need visionary leaders that can bring new jobs and employers to DeWitt County. Our nation’s economy is booming, it’s time we see some of that growth here at home. 


I’m the furthest thing from a one-issue candidate. I love our community and believe that we can make it even better. 


I ask for your vote because I believe I’m the best person to represent District D on the County Board.
