John F. Kennedy once said, "Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future." That quote sums up my political philosophy.

Political acrimony has dominated politics at the Federal and State levels in recent years. Fortunately, that does not seem to be the case in Kane County. I will work with the County Chair and fellow Commissioners to make the best decisions and to provide the best governance for Kane County.
