Positions and Promises

Budget and Accountability 

A budget should be created through careful analysis and a prioritization of the "benefits" our citizens want balanced against the amount that they are willing to pay.  I believe government must live within its means.

Local Benefits 

Our citizens’ top demand is for public benefits includes the following priorities: effective fire and sheriff departments, transportation, water and agricultural resource protection, and an accessible modern library.  Unfortunately shrinking revenues have put a strain on these services.  In order to meet the demand for these services, I believe, continuing to look at the options available is not just warranted but required part of the job.

Economic Development and Jobs 

Butte County is the “Land of Natural Wealth and Beauty”.   In order to develop our economy and increase jobs we should be leveraging our greatest resource, our land.  I believe the key to Butte County’s growth and success is promoting agri-business, tourism, and amenities such as recreational opportunity.  In addition, policy should ensure that business can easily locate here and have the infrastructure necessary for their success.
