Who do you support for Supervisor in the 5th District in the upcoming November election and why?

I support Bruce McPherson because I believe he is free from the trappings of county politics such as favoritism towards agencies and others that would support his reelection in order to expect favors in return. I also believe he can “hit the ground running”. He doesn’t need to spend months figuring out how to make the system work for us.

What are the biggest issues right now for the 5th District?

The biggest issues in our district in my opinion are: Supporting local businesses by removing barriers to their ability to prosper. Repairing and improving our infrastructure. Providing real and reasonable assistance to our struggling community members as directly as possible. I think a big problem in our district is the continuation of policies and programs which spend hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to do very little.

What is your vision for the future of the 5th District?

I envision a district empowered by policies which support local business and encourage entrepreneurial spirit. I envision a district in which land owners are encouraged and educated to be good stewards of their land. And I envision a district where we help each other as neighbors and fellow community members and not through the threat of having our resources taken from us and then used at the discretion of those far less capable.
