The Issues

My Platform is Simple.

What matters to me, first and foremost, is leading with integrity, representing the interests of District 4 residents. As your Commissioner, I will implement an accountable, no-nonsense approach to using taxpayer resources. We must plan and budget for our future and the future of our children.

Economic Development

  • Work closely with community and business leaders seeking to diversify our economy
  • Work with Florida Gulf Coast University as an important resource for the future of the “new” economy of Collier County
  • Explore and evaluate new technologies required by small/medium “clean” companies to attract to Collier County
  • Create a “business-friendly” environment in county government
  • Support our local businesses and encourage new small/medium businesses to relocate to Collier County

County Business

  • Update the County’s strategic plan, creating a blueprint for the County’s future
    with input from the community and all local governing bodies
  • Balance the budget with a continued review of operations for efficiency
  • Use financial discipline and lower the county debt
  • Support the continuing efforts of fire district consolidation
  • Develop an ongoing review and accountability for all phases of County government
  • Create and nurture strong relationships with our citizens for our volunteer boards – we are very fortunate as a County to have such an extraordinary and valuable resource!
  • Insist on respect and civility for all, understanding that governing must be a collaborative effort

Maintain Our Quality of Life

  • Put people first – neighborhoods are the backbone of our community
  • Preserve our natural resources for all to enjoy
  • Meet the required annual maintenance budgeted for our roadway system
  • Support our public transportation infrastructure
  • Ensure public safety through appropriate, efficient and effective ways and means
  • Maintain our parks as safe and clean recreational areas
