My Goals:

As Nez Perce County Commissioner...

I will work hard to represent all citizens in the county.  I will use public input, logic and leadership in making decisions that will affect all of us.

A strong economy means solid employers which means strong, solid pay checks.

We  will ensure New Perce County is a participant and supporter with and for those organizations that are working in Economic Development, such as Valley Vision, the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Lewiston, the Port and others.

Develop good working relationships with other organizations such as the Nez Perce Tribe and the cities and communities in Nez Perce County.  

We will meet regularly to talk, plan and work together to establish common goals and coordinated actions.

Continue to look for efficiencies in function, regulation and use of resources.  

We will take a fresh look to seek better, more efficient ways with the goals of getting more accomplished and making the best use of our tax dollars.

Ensure we have solid County infrastructure - that our roads, our bridges, our communication, our air travel and most importantly the people (employees) working for you and me are planned for and taken care of.

This also includes the courthouse.  I am a firm believer in the saying "it's very difficult to say no to a well thought out researched recommendation".  I will support a recommendation that includes why, what, how(including how it could be paid for), where and who.  I believe a lot of work has been put into this already, but the next steps should include community education, participation and input into that recommendation.

And finally and very important:

I have been helping individuals, businesses and organizations plan for their future for almost 40 years.  

Nez Perce County should operate from a strategic plan that is put together with a vision for our future in mind; reviewed and updated regularly.

Not a plan that "sits on the shelf," but a plan that is available for all to see; that is actionable through our budgeting and activities in leading our county.
