What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve it?

Keeping our environment healthy, clean and safe for all residents should be of major concern for all of us. Providing good jobs and workplaces for all is also an important issue. I also serve on the Land and Water Conservation Committee. I enjoy working on that Committee and hope to continue doing so. Another of the Committees I serve on is the Rail Transit Commissions.

What are other key issues facing the district/municipality, and how would you work to resolve them?

We also need to keep our Ag and Extension programs available for everyone that wishes to use them. I have served on the Ag and Extension Committee for some time and will keep working to help provide services to our citizens.
