    Township Government and the services offered are often a last resort for many residents. I am opposed to the elimination of township government as it relates to the office of Township Trustee.

    I believe each township's voters should be allowed to vote about whether or not it wishes to surrender its government. At minimum, the City-County Council should be allowed to vote and then have those Councillors be accountable to the community at large for those votes. In general, I believe in the best, most affordable service for constituents.

    Local governments are the most directly accessible to the people. They are the men and women on the ground who know the local needs and demands best. Elimination of local control is a disaster in the making.

    RESPECT LOCAL PRIORITIES The success of the state depends on the financial strength of Johnson County cities. Recognizing the 9 unique cities within my district, I respect the importance of local control solutions for each city and school district. With 8 years of local elected service, I have a record of community leadership and know how to responsibly and respectfully spend tax payer dollars

    Township government has the most impact on people's lives in the 7th district. I attend all township meetings In the district to ensure I understand their concerns and challenges they face. It is essential to develop good working relationships with the township boards so that we can effectively communicate.

    Government is inherently inefficient. Local government's job is to provide police and fire protection, and to create an environment that is friendly to business. A solid tax base is the only way to fund the services a municipality can provide.
