Please explain in a total of 100 words or less, your top two or three priorities if elected. If they require additional funding for implementation, please explain how you would obtain this funding.

My top three priorities are education, health and wellness, and economic development and opportunities.

Funding levels for education, including early childhood programs and retooling of adults for 21st century jobs, and health and wellness should be slightly increased. Savings realized from reallocation of funds by decreasing levels of other spending categories should be more than adequate to meet the increases. Public/Private partnerships also help reduce the need for public funding.

Investment in infrastructure and economic development would create jobs, and increase commerce, the viability of communities and their tax bases to realize short, mid and long term return on investments.
