Budget & Fiscal Responsibility
While the current Board of Commissioners and the County Manager have a good handle on the budget, there is always room for improvement. Having a tremendously strong fund balance is to be commended, but our government leaders always need to understand that you are the best steward of YOUR money. With my twenty-five years of working for Fortune 500 Companies, I will be a valuable asset in both the planning for yearly budgets and identifying areas where cost could be cut and funds redistributed. I will start by:
- Reviewing the current property tax plan, especially as it relates to the upcoming property revaluation.
- Focus on keeping property tax to a minimum without sacrificing needs for the county.
- Reviewing the budget structure and identify areas that could be reduced in funding by utilizing analytical and statistical corporate problem solving methods.
