In Senate District 43
A great quality of life is something we all desire. My goal for District 43 is to properly plan so that we can build a strong community that will continue to attract businesses, which will, in turn, help sustain our tax digest. I believe in smaller government with local control as much as possible.
I’m oppposed to tax increases and believe in ethics reform to increase accountability. We need to ensure we have leaders in place who can effectively find solutions to key concerns like ethical challenges, unchecked growth, rising crime rates, and a lack of community cohesiveness.
It’s essential we preserve the rich resources and heritage of District 43 while embracing changes that build upon our foundation and lead us to an even better District. We must continue to foster a sense of community where we have compassion for one another and work together for the common good.
There are no upcoming events to display at this time.
