I have worked to make
our roads safer and our children safer traveling on those roads.
I worked to install sidewalks, stop lights, stop signs and other
traffic control devices so our kids are safe going to school and
sources must be found for the future, or the County will not be
able to meet its mandated roles in public safety and human services.
In order to keep County services at the level most taxpayers want
and expect, I support either the current call for a cigarette tax,
or the Public Safety Sales Tax Referendum. Either of these revenue
sources would allow the County to move forward without further service
cuts. But this is a choice for the people of the County to make,
and should not be mandated by either the County Board or the State
