York County is blessed with growth and opportunity. However, infrastructure must be in place prior to new construction on new developments to avoid more traffic congestion. A better quality of life for all of us starts by not spending half our day in the car stuck in traffic.
As a small business owner, eliminating wasteful spending is one of my top priorities. I will ask the tough questions on county council and never forget that my first responsibility is to taxpayers.
PRESERVE QUALITY OF LIFE
York County is a great place to live, work, and raise a family - let's keep it that way! Focusing on economic development will help us sustain our quality of life. I also want to see leadership on public safety, affordable housing, and parks/recreation.
Fiscal responsibility and fiscal transparency go hand-in-hand. York County residents deserve to know how their tax dollars are being spent. Further, I will focus on improving communications with local governments and school boards.
Where do you hope to see York County in 10 years? In 20 years? In 30 years? These are the questions our elected officials should be answering. With the community's input, York County can create, publish, and get to work on plans for improvement, jobs, and growth.
