My plan is simple -
More Jobs, Not More Houses
Livable Frederick is based on a shared community vision with an action plan to make that vision a reality. We can grow well while we protect and preserve what we value about Frederick like our rich history and our agricultural heritage.
Residential growth must pay its way, its fair share, so existing residents are not stuck with a financial burden.
Residential growth must be timed with our ability to provide needed schools, roads, and essential services.
Restored Trust in Government
Citizens have a right to know what their government is doing and to be assured that decisions are being made in their best interest.
Together we can be PROUD to have:
STRONG ETHICS LAWS
Eliminated conflicts of interest and restored penalties for serious violations
Elected officials cannot profit from their position.
ONLY independent appointment process for members of our Ethics Commission in the state of Maryland.
Earned 1st ever AAA Bond Rating
from all three rating agencies
Saving taxpayers millions of dollars
One of fewer than 50 counties in the nation with three AAA ratings
Fought to protect taxpayers from bad deals of prior administration.
Saved millions by avoiding the bad deal to sell Citizens and Montevue
Ended privatization that was costing taxpayers more
Frederick County government is living within its means.
