Keeping your family safe
I have worked to ensure we have adequate staffing in the jail, and continue to work to decrease booking times so our police officers can get back out on the street where we need them most. I’m also a proponent of Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams who can assist police officers when there is a behavioral health crisis. Keeping you and your family safe is a top priority.
Taking on inflation by making government spending
You are dealing with high gas prices, rising food costs, and expensive housing. The last thing you need is government wasting your money. I will continue working to invest in fiscally responsible long-term solutions and cut wasteful spending so you can keep more money in your pocket.
Fighting for mental health resources
We all know a friend or family member dealing with mental health issues. My own family has struggled. I’m proud of the work I’ve done on both the county and state level to fight for more mental health resources. I have helped make decisions regarding our three-digit crisis line, as well as advocated for our new mental health receiving center. I will continue fighting to ensure you have the information needed and access to resources should you or a loved one need help.
