Here are my priorities and action steps for this year:


1) Cut wasteful spending and continue to look for streams of revenue apart from property taxation.  84% of county revenues come from property tax, which is inherently unfair. 

 


2) Host legislative round tables for our state and federal delegations to communicate county needs of funding local government, providing human services, and fostering community development.



3) Launch the Blighted Property Review Committee to assist municipalities in fighting blight.



4) Collaborate with other counties and provide leadership to fight the opioid crisis.
