With the rapid growth in Laramie County, there are many concerns regarding the strain on our resources. I will thoroughly review all plans and applications that come before the Board of County Commissioners to ensure we are “promoting the public health, safety, morals, and general welfare of the . . . county.” (Wyoming State Statute 18-5-202)
I will collaborate with the other County Commissioners, the County Clerk, and other county departments to construct annual budgets that would reduce the need for 6th Penny Tax propositions.
I believe the 6th Penny Tax should primarily be used for capital projects that are nonessential but would benefit Laramie County.

I will answer all emails and phone calls that come to me. I want to hear from the public and will listen to what they have to say.
“I hope to help Laramie County grow in a sustainable and healthy direction. However, I will prioritize ‘promoting the public health, safety, morals, and general welfare of the county’ (Wyoming State Statute 18-5-202) in all of the decisions I make as a commissioner.”
