- I would like to bring my experience with downtown revitalization to all communities in Linn County to assist in revitalizing their downtowns. Without downtowns there is no center for a community.
- Tourism is a growth industry within the county that needs to be enhanced for economic development. My experience in tourism will benefit our Linn County Fair and Expo Center, including the assets Linn County provides from our natural recreational parks.
- Drug related crime and identity theft continues to burden the economy of Linn County. We need to make sure Linn County continues to work in a collaborative way with all community agencies in enhancing our public safety.
