From campaign flyer
"I know first hand the challenges and struggles families in our community face. Some have even had to make the tough choice to relocate elsewhere, away from family and friends. I also had to consider that as an option as I struggled to find gainful employment. Fortunately, I was successful in finding a teaching job, be able to afford our first home and support our family."
"One of my goals as Commissioner is to continue to create an environment to retain and attract families and jobs for our community."
"Thanks for everyone's support. I am always open to hearing from people, so don't hesitate to contact me."
Tim's Priorities include:
*Public safety- Are we efficiently using the public tax dollars we have now for public safety? Are we continuing to look for innovative ways to get the most bang for our buck for the taxpayers of Saginaw County?
*Law Enforcement (Shared Resources Collaborative)- Share law enforcement resources in such a way that we can offer our community the safety and quality of life that our citizens expect and deserve.
*Health- The County has an obligation to make sure all our citizens have options help them feel better. These include an expansive Health Department that helps larger numbers of residents, and can continue to help more.
*Support Parks and the Rail Trial, where our residents can enjoy our County, meet new friends, have a place to get some exercise.
*Economic Development- Do all we can to attract new and successful business and also retain business that currently provides us with jobs and services. Create new jobs and new investment (i.e. Saginaw County helped secure grants for Stock Building Supply in Zilwaukee which plans on investing $2.5 million and to create 26 new jobs.
*Fairly balancing the County budget during challenging economic times.
*Addressing school truancy- Why are some students not in school? What can be done to help get them into school every day.
*Assuring the health and safety of all our citizens.
*Making Saginaw County an even better place to live, work, learn, and enjoy life.
*Most important- Being available and responsive to constituents in such a way that they feel their needs are being met.
