WHY I'M RUNNING: I love Linn County — it’s untamed beauty, hardworking people and limitless potentential. But, the problems we’re facing — from the housing crisis to access to affordable health care — are incredibly complex.
These problems should not be determined through one-sided conversations.
That’s why I’m running for Linn County Commissioner — to bring a fresh perspective and advocate for our neighbors who have been left behind. Linn County residents who have been forgotton, feel ignored and have lost hope in our bright future.
I will bring fresh perspectives to address some of our biggest challenges, including: • Building an economy that works for everyone • Promoting affordable housing • Planning for smart growth • Improving public safety • Repairing and building roadways, • Providing better public health services and • Protecting farms and the natural resources that make Linn County such a spectacular place to live and raise a family.
This election is about the future of Linn County. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and lead us forward —with an open mind, a bold voice and a listening ear.
