Why should voters elect you?

"With leadership, creativity and collaboration, I will work tirelessly to preserve our quality of life and continue to improve upon Howard County's tradition of excellence."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"I believe that Howard County enjoys an enviable quality of life in many respects — strong schools, excellent libraries and parks, safe neighborhoods, a thriving business community and a strong, active nonprofit sector. My administration's top priority will be to preserve the excellent quality of life we enjoy. As Howard County grows and matures, we face significant challenges — such as land use pressures — which threaten our quality of life. Within these challenges, however, lie tremendous opportunities. As county executive, I will continue our tradition of excellent services and will find creative and collaborative solutions to the new challenges we face."
