As your JP, I've brought my problem-solving skills to Washington County government, to make it work better for everyone. I spent 2018-2020 helping disadvantaged families through my work as a Fayetteville Housing Authority Commissioner.
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. 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.
It's time to do the same with our county government. It’s time to elect more 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 bring honesty, transparency and responsible, collaborative decision-making.
