Why are you running for election?

Due to the Corona Virus we are facing challenging times and a shortfall in available dollars to budget is going to be one of those challenges. We need someone in office that knows how to work with department heads and fellow elected officials to keep the cost as low as possible and still provide the services that are needed and as Citizens of Muscatine County deserves. With my 12 years of experience, I am the best choice to be able to meet those challenges.
