Updates on Road Construction (County 9, County 32), 2nd Amendment, and Presidential Primary

Construction on County Road 9 Delayed

The detours and construction on County Road 9 has been delayed one week because of unfavorable weather.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolution

I do not support a county sanctuary resolution regarding the second amendment. The County Board only takes action on positions that directly relate to county business.  As an elected official I took an oath of office to support the U.S. Constitution; I take this oath seriously.
