It’s probably fair to say that no one fully anticipated the turmoil, uncertainty, or changes affecting our lives over the last several months. All of us have experienced the challenges of a worldwide pandemic and the struggle of how to deal with it here at home in Boone County. And campaigns are no exception. It would be irresponsible of me (not to mention foolish) to hold events, group meetings, or other traditional, in-person activities typically involved in an election campaign, as if nothing had changed.
While this has made things a little complicated, the importance of electing and keeping good leaders, who make decisions based on science and valid data, has not diminished. In fact, competent leadership has never been so important.
We may have had to throw traditional campaign events out the window, but I would still love to hear from you and would welcome your support and participation in my re-election campaign. I am facing four Republican challengers in the August Primary, any of whom will make for tough competition in November.
We will need to be creative in making sure our message is adequately communicated to all voters, regardless of how they get their information, so that each voter can make an informed choice. Of course, I hope that choice is me, come November 2!

I’ll do everything I can to let voters know who I am, why I am their best choice for Northern District County Commissioner, and how I envision making Boone County a safe, secure home for today’s—and tomorrow’s—citizens.
Thank you! Stay well!
