BYRON'S FOCUS AS YOUR NEXT COUNTY COMMISSIONER

Citizens of Elbert County,

I would like to take a moment to thank all of my supporters who have reached out to me and who have been helping. As we move closer to the Assembly process, I am very hopeful that we will be successful and obtain the votes necessary to be on the ballot. 

 

If you are a delegate, I humbly ask for your support on March 30th.  As stated in previous public meetings, I am for keeping Elbert County rural with very controlled growth. 

 

Our water supply is of great concern. This affects not only our day to day quality of life, it also affects our cattle ranches. Our beef is the largest industry in Elbert County. 

 

We are losing millions of dollars in tax revenue annually to our neighbors. We need to capture a large portion of that. We must encourage people to shop and buy in Elbert county, not Douglas, Arapaho and El Paso counties. Even if we collected 10% of that, it would help us with our road and bridge, and our public safety departments.

 

Keeping Elbert County safe is also a priority for me. As a former and retired police chief, I worked through fast growth and saw the impacts it can have on communities if it is not controlled and planned out properly. The impacts to roadways, fire service and law enforcement just to name a few are vital in this process. 

 

A lot of our citizens are seniors, and we must plan accordingly and provide adequate services for them. Many depend on these types of services to survive month to month. 

 

Last but not least, we must find a way to educate our young adults and high school seniors a trade. There has been a lot of discussion on the possibility of a trade school in Elbert County. 

 

We must also support organizations like our FFA which I am a proud lifetime member. 

 

I am also a lifetime member of the NRA and I will never support any regulations or laws that will infringe upon our constitutional rights as firearm owners! 

 

I have over 40 years of experience in both public safety and the private sector. I have managed multi million dollar budgets and been successful at obtaining federal grants to off set impacts to our citizens. 

 

I have worked many disasters in my career and I have seen people at their worst times.

 

I am a successful and proven leader, with your help, we can continue to keep Elbert County rural and a safe place to live. 

 

I sincerely thank you for your time and support. 

- Byron
