This page is generally used to comment on where I am at and reply to issues and statements I receive from you. It is subject to change as I continue to evolve in helping you the voter see that I am the right person for the position of County Commissioner.  Please consider me for district 3, and let everyone know to vote for me. Thank you!!

NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLAN

Projects like this plan are what separates me from my competitors for the office of County Commissioner. As the chairman of the County Planning Commission, our team is being asked to  spearhead this effort to develop a plan for our natural resources. This is a great opportunity for us as community to shape our needs according to what we would like to see Mesa County be and become. To give you an idea of what we are looking for, I will list the areas that we will be putting our attention to. Remember, public input is paramount to the success of this project. I am looking forward to serving you in this capacity and hopefully a vote for me so I can continue to implement these plans according to your wishes.

As you can see, there are many challenges in this plan. We NEED input from everyone to make it work. All I ask is that you give solutions for and not necessarily arguments against. Together we can make a positive difference for our county! Please visit the county website below to make comments, or just let me know. We are here for you!

My campaign is a total GRASSROOTS EFFORT. I do not have a lot of money, and I don't expect you to help finance my efforts to become your next County Commissioner. I will not accept donations as I believe that you should not have to pay for your representation. My thoughts are that if you take money from an entity, or are on a party platform you are bound to those entities and must follow their instruction. For me, as an INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE, I am beholden only to the people as a whole in Mesa County. Lets have unity in our efforts to make our county a great place to visit and live. I will accept votes from all. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and animals registered to vote are all encouraged to vote for me! Responsible growth and looking to our future needs is the cornerstone of my campaign.  I look forward to serving you!
