As a lifelong New Kent resident, graduate of New Kent High School, husband and proud parent to a future New Kent School System student, I want nothing less than the best for our County.
I believe in a fully transparent, accessible and fiscally responsible government at all levels. This is the reason I am running for Treasurer. As Treasurer, I will make the Treasurer’s office as transparent as possible. I understand that the funds entrusted of the Treasurer are the Peoples’ funds. The taxpayers of New Kent should be fully aware of how their funds are being used. Accordingly, taxpayers should have a say in how funds are used and invested and how their Treasurer’s office is run. I plan to establish a Treasurer’s Citizen Advisory Team, to give you a direct say in fiscal policy.
As Treasurer, not only will I diligently fulfill the constitutional and statutory duties of the office, but I will work with the Citizens, Board of Supervisors, School Board, professional organizations and county staff to increase our business tax base and reduce the tax burden on residences.
Several initiatives to improve our Treasurer’s office will be announced in the coming months. Check back often.
I look forward to bringing my years of experience as Treasurer and Finance Committee chairman of a regional governmental organization and management experience in business to work for the taxpayers of New Kent.
