I have a conservative philosophy on the role of government in our lives. I do not believe that local government is intended to be everything for everyone. I believe that the role of county government is to provide a defined set of services in an efficient manner with a high level of customer service to the benefit of the citizens of Houston County. In addition, I believe it is the role of county government, in cooperation with the cities and other community partners, to make strategic investment in infrastructure improvements throughout the community that will create an environment that allows the local economy to thrive.
