Candidate for 7th District Genesee County Commissioner
As a lifelong resident of Flushing Township, I'm thrilled to have received the support of voters in the August 4th Republican primary! I'm excited to hear more from you in the coming weeks, as well as share more about my positive vision for our county.
My first priority for Genesee County residents is the safety of our families both on the road and at home. Central to that mission is creating a more accessible, responsive county government.
For the past five years, I've worked as marketing director for a top-producing real estate firm in Genesee County, and I bring a wealth of board experience and business savvy to the race for commissioner. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business from University of Michigan - Flint and I'm currently completing a dual MBA and MS in Computer Information Systems.
I'm an active member of the local Republican Party, serving as a precinct delegate in Flushing Township and as an elected member of the 5th Congressional District GOP Committee. I'm also a member of the Kiwanis Club of Flint and actively volunteer with the Ennis Center for Children, St Luke N.E.W. Life Center, Special Olympics, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and local elder care and assisted living facilities. I've had the privilege of organizing events such as Donations for Education, benefiting 3rd grade students at Flint Community Schools, as well as Caring for Chemo, fundraising for Hurley Medical Center, and the American Cancer Society.
“Genesee County residents are concerned for the safety of their families on the roads, and in their homes, and they deserve a helpful, responsive county government. As county commissioner, I will be committed to public safety, supporting our police and first responders, maintaining our roads, and greater fiscal restraint in the face of a looming budget shortfall.”
My first priority is safety on our streets and in our homes. That begins with adequate policing and close partnership with the Genesee County Sheriff's office. Establishing a positive working relationship with the Sheriff and deputies is crucial to this goal. I will work to bring residents' concerns to the attention of the County Sheriff in a timely, efficient manner.
SUPPORTING OUR POLICE AND FIRST RESPONDERS
In the midst of a national debate over the role of policing in our cities and towns, police and first responders are facing one of the greatest challenges to their profession in a generation. Like many of you, I'm concerned for the safety of our police. I want to ensure that our community will have their backs. In a political atmosphere which calls to "defund the police," I pledge to keep our good faith commitments to both our first responders and our communities by rejecting these dangerous impulses.
Genesee County's extensive county roads system, combined with a severe freeze-thaw cycle, make for an aging infrastructure that requires constant upkeep. I will work closely with our County Road Commission to quickly identify dangerous roadway segments which require immediate attention. I will address problems in a cost-effective way, with a focus on repairs which last longer and reduce wear and tear on vehicles.
Faced with the county's looming budget shortfall, our commissioners will soon be forced to make some tough choices. I'm committed to keeping our promises to our county retirees, while meeting the needs of residents who depend on crucial county services. I will not approve a single line item that does not meet either of these priorities.
Our Genesee County veterans and their families have made and continue to make enormous sacrifices for our country. It's our county government's Veterans Services duty to honor those sacrifices. Veterans and their families deserve dedicated, compassionate support from county government, and I am committed to that solemn responsibility.
Improving seniors' quality of life starts with making it easier to access senior services in county government. Recommitting to our senior centers, responsible oversight of senior millage dollars, special care for the homebound, and protecting seniors from abuse are just a few of the ways we can achieve that goal.
