County Commissioners need to help grow the economy of our county. I am running for County Commissioner for District 3 (Muskegon Township).
I have several goals, if elected to represent you.
* The first is to get more jobs for our county, and better paying jobs. We need jobs for everyone. We need this to prosper, and to keep our families here, near us.
This will require a long term sustained effort to understand our manufacturing sector and support it. Working with our regional Economic Development neighbors will make a big difference.
* The second is to actively support small and large manufacturers to keep jobs here, and help them expand (more jobs for everyone). We need to be friendly for businesses to invest more in our county. This will include actively meeting with businesses to assess their needs and determine how the county can support them. We should develop vocational training programs to help our residents become more successful at these businesses.
* The third is to begin to clean up the polluted ĺSuperfund) sites near us. This is for our community's health, and for attracting new large manufacturers to our county. I am a chemical engineer and have designed, and operated environmental systems that clean water, air and that keep pollutants out of landfills. This will direct us down a path of sustainable living and work practices here in Muskegon County.
I believe need to need to care about the vulnerable around us. I want to develop funding in the county to help the disabled have work and activities that help them be productive and feel pride in contributing something of value. State funding comes and goes and leaves these people stranded at home. We can change it.
And what would you like to be done?
