MY PRIORITIES

 

BOOSTING OUR ECONOMY

As Monroe County works to rebound from the COVID crisis, we need legislators who understand that investments need to be made into small businesses and the workforce. If elected, I will work to:

  • Create grants up to $20K for small businesses opening up

  • Get folks into livable wage jobs with a $2.5 million investment in Workforce Development

  • Support arts programs that have been impacted by closures

  • Work with the community to determine how to use American Rescue Plan dollars

  • Protect taxpayers by keeping the Monroe County tax rate flat 

KEEPING US SAFE

We all want our families to live in safe, healthy neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the Republican-led legislature gutted public safety funding to create a $2 million dollar slush fund for their own gain. I will fight to keep our community safe by:

  • Restore the $600,000+ that was taken from the Sheriff's Department by the Republicans in the legislature

  • Further invest in the FIT & IMPACT programs

  • Allocate AMR funds to services for Violence Reduction

  • Engaging the community to identify priorities for recovery dollars that target violence reduction, while also supporting victims and their families

  • Investing in the Department of Public Health to ensure they have the resources they need to finish the fight against COVID-19 and battle the opioid crisis

INVESTING IN OUR COMMUNITY

Greece residents deserve a legislator who can get us back to basics- by making investments where they matter most.  As your county legislator I will prioritize:

  • Investing in our County Roads & other infrastructure

  • Supporting initiatives that bring renewable energy to Monroe County

  • Investing $7.5 million in Monroe County Parks

  • Finding a common-sense plan to keep our students and young people here

  • Providing support services for mental health and our veterans
