Elected to the County Board District 1 beginning January 2019. I ran on the platform that our taxes in Chisago County are too high due to the low amount of commercial/industrial tax base. I will do my best to keep costs under control while encouraging economic development in the county. Too many of our residents are stuck commuting to jobs in the cities. This hurts their quality of life as well as our economic well being in the county. I want to bring more jobs to the county which will increase the tax base and shift the tax burden away from current homeowners and businesses, create local good paying jobs, and help retail survive in the county by keeping people local so they shop local.
If you have any concerns, input, feedback, or ideas, please let me know.
