“The residents of District 5 need a strong voice and an active, interested representative at the county level,” she said in statement.

She the qualities of a commissioner should include listening to residents, having a vision for the future, focusing on what’s best for the county, keeping an open mind, protecting the county’s quality of life and strategically setting priorities and goals.
