My Priorities as County Chair
Monday, September 22nd, 2014 @ 8:02PM
As Chairman of the Johnson County Commission my priorities will continue to be:
PUBLIC SAFETY – Sheriff’s Department, Med-Act Services and Fire District responsibilities are basic needs that must be properly funded.
EDUCATION – The cornerstone of our county’s success has been the quality of our K-12 and higher education opportunities-our collective future is closely tied to their continued success and all leaders in Johnson County should help ensure that success.
JOB CREATION – Economic growth is a key to future success in building a community of opportunity. County government must continue to work with and support our cities in making sure the necessary infrastructure is in place to support their economic development activities. These activities will provide the appropriate tax revenues to maintain a high quality of life for all of our citizens.
LIBRARIES AND PARKS- Both are important community assets which contribute significantly to our quality of life. Maintaining and improving these quality community amenities is very important.
SERVICES FOR SPECIAL NEEDS AND AGING POPULATIONS – Providing needed services for these special populations will require not only continued local support but cooperation from state and federal programming.
RESPONSIBLE, DISCIPLINED FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS – My continued commitment is to the effective, efficient management of county government and your tax dollars.
