Campaign Themes Announced

Greetings Lincoln County! Please find my core themes as a candidate for Lincoln County Commissioner – Position #1.

Some people are concerned I am “oversharing” and that I should create a separate website for this election. However, I am largely confident that the content of this website will provide much context for who I am as a person. I believe that matters! May our community explore these pages and begin to understand what makes me tick as person outside of the election and in life.

My core themes are Customer Service, Communications/Community Engagement, Emergency Preparation, and a Thriving Community. My interests and priorities are not limited to these categories. My sense is that we do need a place to start the conversation! No doubt, I will be expanding on these positions as time moves forward. I will be especially expanding on the theme I call “thriving” because it is a “meta subject/theme” and has many dimensions to explore.

Thank you to my MOM for taking several “campaign” photos… I know this will probably drive her nuts that I even mentioned it! I love her so and appreciate that an election creates new opportunities to spend time together.

Also, PLEASE take a moment and provide your comments on the COUNTYWIDE SURVEY. Many of your are posting to Facebook – that is fantastic! Any feedback is appreciated… But, the survey makes it easier for me to track your priorities from a clerical perspective. Please consider completing the survey.

In the coming months I will be responding to the survey and social media with video responses. I believe this will the easiest way for me to expedite answers to your questions and give you a more visceral idea of who I am, what my demeaner is like and how I respond to your inquiries.

County Government Priorities – SURVEY

What are your priorities for a County Commissioner? Please take a moment to participate in this brief 3 question survey. – Prioridades de la comunidad – Comisionado del condado

Please add as much detail as you would like to the survey questions. They are open ended. I wanted to begin the dialogue with a simple recognition and feedback process. I do envision more detailed surveys in time…

Customer service, communication/community engagement, emergency preparedness, and a “thriving community” are a few of my key themes. You can read more about those missions – here.

Yet, I should be careful to be too presumptuous. How many candidates will tell you what THEY plan to do for you? Here is the thing… When was the last time Lincoln County asked you for your feedback outside of our weekly Commissioner meetings? I believe we need to meet the community where they are at… What does that mean? I will explain this more in the coming weeks and months! Essentially, it means I believe you need the facts, presented concisely, so you can take action at any moment on the County’s evolving policy decisions.

But I want to hear from YOU.

I will be conducting a countywide survey now and into the future as your next County Commissioner.

Feedback from the community will be constant process for me. An open dialogue should be and will be my commitment to our community. Please be articulate and honest.

Realize that I will be referring to your comments in our future community discussions together. Include the subjects that are within the County’s current “menu of services” and those that might be “locally desired” in the future. Thank you for your time! Our future is collaboration and shared wisdom!
