NCJ: What are the two biggest challenges facing the Fifth District and what are your plans to address them?
Public Safety & Housing are the two biggest challenges for the 5th District as well as the county.
What is the county government's largest flaw in responding to residents' needs and how do you plan to fix it?
For my communications, I respond to 100 +/- communications a day in my normal course of business. I believe I can at least maintain that pace if not increase as a supervisor. Good communication comes with good culture, I would love to see county culture improve and help facilitate that process.
Why are you the right person to represent the Fifth District for the next four years?
I have a much broader set of experience and skills to bring to the supervisor position for more positive results to all residents of the 5th District instead the current narrow focus.
