Thank You to everyone for your support During My

2018 CamPAIGN and Re-Election!

Dear Friends,

Two years ago, I set goals for my County Commissioner 2016-2018 term of office.  I have met those goals, and more.

In addition to day-to-day county operations, I have:

  • Established a nonprofit organization, Lake Antoine Park Partners, which has   already received more than $29,000 in grants and donations;
  • Advocated for implementation of enhanced security, ADA access and Wi-Fi for the County Courthouse- now a reality
  • Completed a county-wide survey to update the Dickinson County Master Plan;
  • Received final approval for the Iron Belle Trail through Dickinson County, and assisted with a $30,000 DNR grant for Bike Path route improvements
  • Advised the start-up of a business incubator and maker-space; and
  • Most importantly, helped negotiate employee contracts with defined contribution retirement benefits for all new hires, eliminating legacy pension liabilities for County taxpayers.

My goals for next term are to:

  • Rewrite the Dickinson County Master Plan to guide future planning and economic development
  • Update the County’s Recreation Plan for DNR grants
  • Review and update Commissioner Policy and Procedures
  • Continue Lake Antoine Park improvements through fundraising, capital campaigns, grants and County appropriations
  • Continue my membership on State and County committees, and
  • Support the employees and retirees of Dickinson County Healthcare System

It will be my great honor to continue to serve all people of Dickinson County.  I am resourceful, focused, intelligent and productive.  I have the experience and knowledge necessary to be efficient and effective as a county commissioner. I have proven I can get the job done! If you reside in District 3, please vote for me on November 6.  If you live elsewhere, please share my achievements and plans with others. Thank you!

Beliefs and Values

Unprecedented challenges require bold leadership to find the right solutions. 


The time has come for us to proactively and aggressively seek out new options for growth and development for Dickinson County so that the tax base expands and reduces the burden on our residents. County Commissioners no longer have the option of sitting back and simply maintaining the status quo. As a County Commissioner, I am committed to working with local government leaders to develop long-range strategic plans and goals for economic, recreational and cultural development. We will strive to make our County more attractive for our residents and to individuals and businesses that are considering making Dickinson County their home. 

Your Voice Will Be Heard

I like to converse with my constituents in personal encounters.

We can meet for coffee and conversation about your concerns.  Send me an email or give me a call to set something up.
