Full Speed Ahead

2014 is going to be a very big year for us, and I'm hitting the ground running.

I'm excited to formally announce that I am running for re-election to be your Franklin County Commissioner for four more years.

I'm honored to already have the endorsement of the Franklin County Democratic Party, and will proudly represent our progressive agenda.

I'm also very pleased that my colleagues have selected me as President of the Board of Commissioners for 2014. I look forward to serving the residents of Franklin County in this role, and to advancing policies and programs for our entire County. 

I'm committed to continuing to invest in economic development that works for our entire community and that retains and creates good jobs for Franklin County residents. I'm equally committed to enhancing our commitment to arts and culture, and the safety and security of our region.

As we invest in economic and workforce development, social safety net programs, and community security, I will always remain committed to working strategically, ever mindful that I am foremost elected as a fiscal steward of the County, and that we must - and we will - preserve our double AAA bond rating and Franklin County's financial stability and sustainability.

I have a great team helping me do all of these things. At the County, I have Michael Daniels as my policy director, Jared Smith has joined us as office manager, and Mike Hochron is our John Glenn School graduate intern leading special projects. On the campaign, Seth Josolowitz is coordinating and organizing my events.

I'm so blessed to have the best job, to work with the best people, and to have the best friends and supporters. I look forward to working with you in 2014 on every level.

My thanks and very best wishes for an amazing 2014!
