I am committed to growing our economy and supporting efforts to diversify our economy, to include good-paying technology jobs in agriculture and other industries, as well as value-added opportunities.
I will prioritize retaining, expanding and recruiting businesses in rural communities.
I have 20 years of experience in economic and community development. Successful city managers quickly learn to overcome barriers and take advantage of opportunities. While serving as Livingston City Manager, major projects included the Foster Farms expansion and the recruitment of Emerald Textile, to name a few.
I will be a strong advocate for job training programs that provide participants the skills required to compete for good paying jobs that support their families.
