While out campaigning for Kosciusko County Commissioner, you have told me that you are tired of our elected officials not working together to get things done to make our community better for all. I’ve knocked on doors not just in the bigger towns but in the smaller communities and rural areas too, like Silver Lake, Claypool and Pierceton, and I have heard you.
It is always vital that we vote for people rather than party — for the person, not the consonant after the person’s name. This year is certainly no exception. With that in mind, I write to talk about working with Craig Snow, despite the different consonants at the end of our names.
In order to get things done here in Kosciusko, it is vital to have help from our representatives in Indianapolis. The number one item I have heard from you are concerns about road work in our rural areas. Craig and I have already discussed these issues as they take work on a state level. Funding for the highway department to fix our roads is being funneled more to the state level and away from local levels and mandatory formulas about spending further complicate the issue. If we can get our state representative to address these issues it helps us on a local level too.
In a time when we need to really focus on people over parties, I look forward to working with Craig Snow to make our community better for all of us.
