PUBLIC SAFETY

  • Fire resiliency programs and Forest Management
  • Completed the Deschutes County Stabilization Center

  • Our sheriffs department is fully funded. We will not tolerate the type of crime we see due to the failed policies of Portland.

SOUND FISCAL POLICY

  • Cut Property Taxes – Since 2017, with my urging, the county has actually cut taxes, putting money back in the pockets of residents and small businesses, where it belongs.
  • Insure insure cost and metrics are discussed when considering short-term and long-term costs of any program or investment.

COMMON SENSE LEADERSHIP

  • Mutual Respect: Together we can continue to make Deschutes County a great place to live!
  • Mandates: I fought and stopped overly restrictive COVID policies being pushed for Deschutes County. I believe personal responsibility must always be protected from government overreach.
  • Business Support: Worked quickly and clearly to get ARPA dollars out to businesses in need.
