Candidate Statement
"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof." Psalms 24:1

It all starts with clean air, water and soil - that's the base we all build on. I’m running for Soil and Water because I am committed to improving Durham County from the ground up, and that means that we have to focus on the health and smart growth of our community: Together, working with other city officials, my focus will include:

• Educating our citizens, managers and landowners on the conservation services that Durham County offers

• Providing leadership on county programs

• Coordinating with state and federal agencies to improve water quality Durham County is your home, and it’s my home too!

I was born and raised here, and I have seen the County grow and modernize in ways that fill me with pride!

I hope that this election I can gain your support to continue to grow a healthy and sustainable Durham County while planning for new County projects that support our vibrant quality of life.
