What is your position on public safety?
Public Safety is at the core of so much of the focus on county success. if people feel safe they will reside in the county. If they feel and are safe they will be strong consumers in the county. If we have strong consumers in the county, business will come to the county to provide goods and services. If businesses have strong, safe and confident customers the will grow and now provide jobs in the county. Public that feels safe to live and work in their county will not only attract success and growth, it will demand it.
