Goals and Priorities 

I am committed to sustainably balancing the budget by increasing revenue the old-fashioned way: by streamlining the permitting process, bringing certainty in both time and cost to applicants, and encouraging and supporting all types of business and development.

Until the issue is properly addressed, infrastructure maintenance will continue to be a high priority for me and my staff in the next fiscal year. We are committed to pressuring the Board to fully fund the County's annual maintenance responsibilities for roads, parks, and public buildings, and will continue to emphasize reducing the over $250 million in deferred maintenance that has accrued.
