Our region has a genuine character with a strong, diverse population, which gives it a unique opportunity to affect progressive change throughout Ohio. It is the responsibility of younger generations to confront the challenge of an ever evolving world by maintaining our legacy, while furthering humanity's well being. Many young professionals have moved out of the region because of other opportunities, but I am motivated to stay and revitalize the area. My goal as county commissioner is to enhance our economic development, community revitalization, environment and human services so they will be the reasons people stay and the motivation for others to return.
Plans As Commissioner
Restore integrity and confidence in politics for Mahoning County.
Not support any politician or community leader who abuses their position.
One step closer to ending corruption in the Mahoning Valley.
Do whatever I can to connect businesses, promote our region and make decisions to attract commerce to our county.
Be a voice against questionable practices by other political entities.
Part of a new generation who understands the challenges facing our future.
Pursue digital and technology based jobs to Mahoning County. In the digital age, it is less important where digital companies locate most of their workforce. Relocating digital jobs to our area can save these companies money on office space and salaries while providing the Mahoning Valley new workers, highly paid positions and economic opportunities.
Server Farms: With improved internet connectivity, this area can be an ideal spot for server farms. Stable climate (Low risk of natural disasters) located in the middle of two metropolitan areas (around 8 million within 2 hour drive), availability of energy, old industrial buildings which are perfect for housing server farms, and inexpensive land. Adds hundreds of construction jobs and can lead to permanent jobs with a salary of $80,000.
Investment in 3D printing for additive manufacturing and medical technology can lead to entrepreneurial opportunities and having Mahoning County leading the advancement into these burgeoning fields.
We might have a little rust in our blood, but we have a spine made of steel. It's our time to stand up against horrible decisions, questionable leadership and sever ties to corruption in Mahoning County!
