Have you ever held public office? I’ve been county commissioner in District 11 since 2018.

What will be your top three priorities be during your four-year term? 

1. Reducing government waste

2. Keeping taxes low

3. Demanding quality education

What is the biggest challenge facing Williamson County? How would you solve it? 

The responsible management of financial and human resources is the most significant challenge facing the governance of Williamson County. Our local law enforcement officers, emergency services employees, educators, judicial staff and municipal management directors and workers are our county’s most valuable resource and are what make our Tennessee community stand above all others.

As the legislative body of the county, the commission is tasked not just with the management of county roads, property and zoning, but importantly also funding and directing the efforts of our county’s departments and their employees.

Maintaining a balance between these competing demands and preventing government bloat requires a knowledgeable and steady hand focused on sustainable and fiscally responsible financial management.

As I enter my second term in office, I will continue to vote against measures requiring property tax increases and resolutions needlessly increasing our financial obligations for projects better suited for private sector financing and will continue my pursuit of innovative funding solutions, critical examination of the county’s spending practices and support of our workers.
