My Washington County Values
Improving Residents' Lives
Supporting Our Local Economy
Fighting for Good Wages
Washington County belongs to all of us. Our county government should benefit ordinary working people. I believe in strengthening our county services, ensuring good wages, and supporting and protecting housing.
I'm here to serve the people. I'm often told I'm one of the few JPs who will reply to people's emails and phone calls. I respond.
Washington County's 15 Justices of the Peace make up the legislative branch of county government. Collectively, we are called the "Quorum Court". We each represent a different part of the county and its various cities. My district includes most of south Fayetteville, downtown and Mount Sequoyah.
The most important thing we do is oversee the county budgets. That includes the county road department, the criminal justice system, and the elections department. We are also authorized to conduct marriage ceremonies.
Since 2020, Washington County has received tens of millions of dollars in federal relief in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. But many of those funds are in danger of being misspent. We need to stand strong and use that money as it was intended - to help our community.
I'll continue standing up to extremists and fighting to make our Washington County government more inclusive, equitable, and democratic.
