What are the biggest issues that affect District 12?

- overcrowding at the jail

- supporting services that address housing and homelessness, addiction, and mental health
- building partnerships and trust
I’ve spent the past two years helping disadvantaged families through my work as a Fayetteville Housing Authority Commissioner. Now I want to bring my problem-solving skills to Washington County government to make it work better for everyone.
I volunteered to join the FHA at a time of crisis. The former leaders had announced plans to sell off one of the last public housing projects in the city to a private developer, without meaningful public input. Since then, we took the agency in a new direction, rebuilt the public's trust, and moved forward with new, innovative, and collaborative solutions to help more people than ever before.
I'd like to do the same with our county government. It’s time to elect people who CARE about YOU and are dedicated to serving YOU. No more backroom decision-making in County government and lack of public input. As a Quorum Court member, I'll bring with me the same values I brought to the FHA: honesty, transparency and responsible, collaborative decision-making.
