Actionable Issues

These actionable issues reflect my commitment and priorities aimed at advancing the interests and well-being of our community, promoting prosperity, and preserving our rural American values. There are many more than what is listed here, please reach out to me directly to discuss more!

Issues

Fiscal Responsibility

Balanced budgets, careful planning and prioritization of spending are crucial to ensuring efficient use of taxpayers’ dollars. I believe our local government agencies should be held ac-countable to taxpayers, this should include regular audits and public reporting of government expenditures.

  • Support Levy Businesses- Local businesses should be given preference and advanced notice to submit bids to provide services for the county and preferential treatment should not be given to any one particular vendor.

  • Sell unused county properties that can be placed back on to the tax roll.
Economic Growth

Our county currently acts more as a ‘bedroom community’ where our residents must travel out of the county to find work. I support policies that attract businesses, create clean industry jobs, and stimulate economic growth. Let’s bring more local career opportunities to the residents of Levy County.

Property Owner Rights

We must protect small businesses, farms, ranches, and taxpayers’ property rights! I believe in limited government intervention and an individual’s freedom to make choices on what is done on their property. Preserving property rights is essential to a free and prosperous society.

Community Engagement

I am committed to transparency, accountability, and open communication with constituents, fostering a culture of civic engagement and collaboration to address local issues effectively.

Major Issues

Animal Control

I want to take the necessary steps to optimize this service to better support the county’s needs.

I would like to form task force of concerned citizens for Animal Control to find ways to improve this resource and the adoption of animals.

Levy County Landfill Reform

Our landfill should be assessed to make sure that out of county businesses and individuals pay the appropriate fees for utilizing our services.
