Mark Controlled Spending and Reduced the Debt
While Maintaining Services
I believe that budgets and borrowing need to be controlled in a responsible manner that respects both the needs of the community and
the burden on taxpayers. My record as Winnebago County Executive shows that I have proven success managing spending and debt.
County debt* has decreased by more than 20 million dollars or 37%. None of this was at the expense of the services the County provides.
Despite controlling spending I was able to build a new,168 bed nursing home when so many other counties were closing their facilities.
We built new engineering classrooms at UWO Fox Cities, so the local economy would have more access to highly skilled workers.
Also, we invested over 42 million dollars in new transportation infrastructure projects. My record demonstrates that I am able
to manage the budget in a way that is good for our long term fiscal health, and that meets the needs of the community.
