Jackson County is the home of Harry Truman. Jackson County has some of the most beautiful parks in the world. Jackson County is home to the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals. And we cheer on the Mizzou Tigers, the KU Jayhawks and K-State Wildcats to name a few.
I want to see our county build on what makes us great and attract new business. I love Jackson County and see a great future.
My experience as a NY transplant 23 years ago coming to KC, I found the city refreshing and exciting. Today, we have a county that has done many things well but is being threatened with a potential massive property tax increase like nothing Jackson County has ever experienced. We also need to support our police and let our enforcement professionals that we will give them the financial support, training, and respect they have earned.
Also, Jackson County needs a fresh set of eyes taking a look at the "numbers". As with all budgets, there are always places where we can cut the unnecessary expenditures. I will be a hawk on spending.
