38 Year Resident of Doney Park, 40 Years as a Science Educator
No one is more equipped to serve District 4 than Bryan
I come from a family engaged with community service. I spent 40 years as a science educator and now have the opportunity to give back to the place I call home.
If elected, I will:
- Keep my constituents respectfully informed of County activities and opportunities
- Continue to improve planned development, road maintenance and other public services
- Create county-wide (potentially multi-county), long-term water use and flood management plans
- Continue forest health treatment to reduce potential catastrophic fire risk.
- Increase support of our educational system to maintain high-quality teachers, counselors, and staff who serve our children and future
- Fund the criminal justice system to become more efficient and effective with less backlog.
- Attend to County fiscal management and efficient use of tax-payer funds
