As a commissioner for Klamath County, my most important job will be to listen to the residents of Klamath County and represent their views when making decisions. I will listen and work to improve life for the people of Klamath County. The goals that I see as important to work toward are as follows:
- Increase services for our seniors: Our County lacks care beyond the hospital for seniors.
- Health related specialists: We need to make Klamath County the place in which they want to live and work.
- Protect the farmland: We need to find a way to bring in industries, shopping, and recreation that attract professional people, but protect our farms.
- Career, family wage earning jobs: We need to keep our jobs here and productive while seeking new opportunities for our young people so they can stay in Klamath County.
- Education: We have the best schools; we need to make sure they will remain successful.
Let us work together to keep Klamath County GREAT.
