ON THE ISSUES
I grew up on a farm in Knox County talking politics around the dinner table with my family. My parents taught me that leadership and politics were about:
Listening to others in our community to identify problems,
Working with all segments of the community to come up with solutions, and
Then implementing those solutions to make our community a better place.
Politics gets a bad rap, but to me, working together to make our community a better place is what it should be all about.
I want to hear what issues are important to you!
In the coming months, I will do a virtual listening tour, talking online and by phone with groups and individuals about what issues you care about and how we can work together to address them. As the virtual listening tour progresses, I will continue to add issues to this page.
