I am a strong fiscal conservative. Elected officials have a responsibility to carefully spend taxpayer money.
Davis County collects both sales and property taxes to fund it’s operations. The Commission is in charge of creating a budget and has control over certain tax rates. I will not vote for a tax increase without exploring all available options first. Unlike many elected officials in local government, I don’t believe growth is an automatic justification for a tax increase. I will scrutinize any government expenditure to ensure your tax dollars are being spent wisely.
My career as a software engineer is focused on improving the way businesses function. Anyone who runs a business knows that fixing small inefficiencies can add up to big savings and better customer service. Governments are no different. As a commissioner I will use my career experience to identify and fix inefficiencies, streamline operations, improve services, and save taxpayer money.
