Smart Planning and Common Sense to Balance Growth and Retain the Natural Beauty of Henderson County
Henderson county will continue growing. Without smart planning by the Board of Commissioners, population sprawl will raise our taxes to pay for services and destroy the agricultural and natural heritage we love so much.
In recent years, we’ve watched several communities repeatedly battle poorly placed developments:
- An asphalt plant in East Flat Rock
- A proposed gun range in Saluda
- Neighborhood density issues in Etowah
- Storage units in Crab Creek
- Development in Henderson County's floodplain
Community members have spent countless hours and their hard-earned savings to protect their landscape and lifestyle.
We need smart planning that places growth where infrastructure is present, taxpayers’ property values won't be hurt, and the lifestyle of the community won’t be harmed.
As commissioner, I will support judicious zoning and a proper Comprehensive Land Use Plan that will help balance growth while maintaining Henderson County’s natural beauty.
Experience in County Education
I was first elected to the Henderson County School Board in 2018 and re-elected in 2022. In these six years, I have not only gained an in-depth understanding of this taxpayer service, but also insight into the county’s largest employer and the largest single item on the county’s yearly budget. My goal is to make every graduating student a positive contributor to society. I have visited all 23 schools in Henderson County many times and met with each Principal to understand their challenges and needs.
As Commissioner, I will remain in close contact with our educators and businesses to make sure our taxpayer dollars go to areas with the greatest return. This perspective will give students opportunities to thrive and remain in the county after graduation to the greater benefit of the county as a whole.
