What do you see as the top three issues in this race?
- Debt: Expedite the reconciliation of existing obligations and forfeit the inclination to borrow.
- Business Growth: We must provide an environment conducive to business growth. We must reduce taxes, reduce regulation, and streamline bureaucracy.
- Water: Our County needs to be cognizant of a quality source of water for businesses and residents. Diminishing water quality with increasing salinity jeopardizes our agriculture and could be a detourent to future residential growth if not addressed.
