    I believe that good-paying, sustainable jobs and job security are the primary issues that need to be addressed in Precinct 2 . Since the Great Recession of 2008 I know that my friends, neighbors, and citizens of Precinct 2 have been struggling with the low wages and stagnant opportunities to move up in their workplaces.

    Governor Hogan has turned Maryland around by providing tax relief, by cutting wasteful spending, by reducing fees, and by regulatory reform. Maryland is now first among mid-Atlantic state in job creation. No longer are its citizens and businesses fleeing. We simply need to follow Gov. Hogan's lead and to support his policies. His four years in office is a profound success.

    I support training & development initiatives for individuals seeking employment. Gainful employment programs will also help afford the opportunity to hedge against cost of living while providing for their families. For those that protect & invest in our future such as Public Safety, Veterans, & Teachers, we must approve a budget that supports pay scale improvements to salaries & benefits.

    Economic Development: County government does not DO economic development, it should enable it. Storey County has the best approach and is full after 10 years, meaning those companies are now coming on down the highway to Mineral County. I believe the county must get away from the good ol' boy constraints and become business friendly. The County job is to have user-friendly codes.

    We are currently enjoying low unemployment, but many people are still working in jobs that pay far to little. I support government encouraging job creation in clean, green industries that will be growing in the future, and that will pay minimum wages of no less than $15 an hour.
