Hello and thank you for visiting my page. Here’s a little bit about me. I have been serving you as a county commissioner for about 2.5 years and am getting ready to start my campaign for reelection.
The last 2.5 years have been very busy. We resolved the Stafford problem, built some parks, have a sustainability initiative moving forward, developed an equity diversity and inclusion program, hired a new administrator, and are tightening up our budget significantly. We also passed the first local source of funding for our roads that are badly in need of maintenance.
We have been active with the state legislature and with Metro, securing 31.5 million dollars towards a new, much needed courthouse and numerous grants from Metro as a result of building positive working relationships. As I have often said “Governments that don’t work together, don’t work! “
As for personal initiatives I am championing, first is cross-laminated timber — a wonderful building material, sustainable, sequesters carbon and renewable. I am also working on increasing high-speed internet capabilities for our residents and businesses and on a Land Bank Authority to rehab distressed properties and re-market them for new businesses.
Finally, we are all particularly proud of our new veterans village — getting homeless vets off the streets and into supported housing and the necessary social services to help them stand up, once again, on their own two feet.
That’s all for now. Please visit our site again soon and see where I stand on numerous issues and a bit about my background as a Marine and law enforcement officer. Ken
