Issues from the parade route

Another season of summer celebration parades is over. It was fun to participate in the parades and see so many families enjoying all the floats and other entries. It was also a great pleasure to be able to meet and talk with many Jasper County residents during and after the parades in Newton, Baxter, Colfax, Prairie City and Monroe.

As a candidate for Jasper County Supervisor, many chose to share their concerns and opinions on a number of topics. Prominent topics were county roads, lack of communication by one or more of the current supervisors, public safety, sharing of resources and economic development/quality of life issues. There was no lack of opinions, nor options for action, these folks wanted to see pursued. 

With my 16-plus years of governing experience, I was able to share my thoughts and answer their concerns. No matter what the issue, I have always worked to find a reasonable resolution to the issue or concern brought to me by a constituent/taxpayer. My commitment to all Jasper County residents is that I will continue to do the same, and, if elected, I pledge to serve you full-time as your county supervisor. As a taxpayer in Jasper County, you deserve a full-time commitment!
