We have serious challenges facing our community. I have the relationships, the track record, and the leadership to help solve our problems.

Capping the Tax – Fighting for Tax Reform for Residential Properties
I am the only House District 23 candidate that will support capping the tax. I will work to cap the tax on annual increases in residential and rental property values for primary homeowners. Make no mistake, Teton County is facing a crisis. Skyrocketing property taxes are pushing out retirees, people on fixed incomes, and working families. 40% increases in property taxes make our affordable housing challenges even more difficult.
This is unacceptable, we have to fight for property tax relief. If we truly believe in affordable housing, capping the tax is one way we can help support retirees, folks on fixed incomes, and working families.
Real Leadership on State Lands Parcels – Relationships and a Seat at the Table
Lawsuits are no substitute for leadership and negotiation for our state land parcels. We have to use our state land parcels for the benefit of school-age children in Wyoming. We can do this.
As the candidate endorsed by Governor Mark Gordon, I will have a seat at the table to help our community work with the State Lands and Investments Board (SLIB) to make sure our expertise and our values are reflected in the approved uses of these critical parcels in our community.
Stewardship Balanced with Infrastructure
One of my proudest achievements as an elected official is our work on Highway 89. It is a clear example of what our community can achieve through collaboration and partnerships. Today, highway 89 is a functional highway with fewer wildlife deaths because we worked with WYDOT to create a highway that is safe and works for wildlife, visitors, workers, and commuters. With effective leadership, Teton County can once again create safe, functional solutions for Highway 22. We cannot achieve our housing goals without infrastructure. However, through my past works, I have proven we can work collaboratively to balance our values.
