County Planning

George Washington Carver said, "A man without vision is a man without hope." His comment is applicable to OUR county government.

It is concerning having an expensive long-range plan collecting dust in the courthouse. Macon County has been bleeding young energetic professionals and retirees since the 80s. Without planning and its precise implementation, we will continue to be drained of OUR valuable citizens, thereby creating a greater burden on residents by having their wealth taken to support a government unwilling to adopt to the shrinking of its tax base.

OUR population is aging, planning considers all demographic shifts for action.

Having the confidence that elected public servants know and will act best for us, our clan, and geographic area is a faulty assertion.

The five who temporarily occupy the county commission DO NOT have all the answers, nor will I. However, I know OUR citizens have the solutions to OUR problems by living the reality every day, just ask them.

I will call, not appoint citizens, to participate in an ad hoc committee with access to all elected public servants and offices to determine the degree of OUR issues from communal, crime, and OUR socio-economics.

As chair, I will examine and proactively address the demands for our changing demographics.
