As an elected official, I believe in governing responsibly with a balanced budget. It comes from my experience as a small business owner and is a big part of my approach as a public servant. As the Mayor of Bayfield and trustee, I have kept a balanced budget over my 6 years tenure. As County Commissioner, you can count on me to govern within our means and to keep our expenses and revenue balanced.
As our community grows, it's critical that we attract large and medium sized employers that will provide quality jobs for people across our County. Hardworking people across La Plata have similar goals, to provide for their families and support a good quality of life. As a leader of the Mill Street Revitalization Committee in Bayfield, I know the hard work that goes into attracting and retaining businesses. I am committed to pursuing more opportunities for our community.
The fate of Bayfield's transfer station must be addressed. This should stay in Bayfield. As Mayor I worked closely to keep Bayfield's DMV in Bayfield. I will do the same for this transfer station.
