Bannock County is a great place to live and raise a family. Its future is bright and the county is in a good position to take advantage of opportunity.

I believe we can do better.

Bannock County is set for major growth in the upcoming years. I believe we should be proactive in getting ready for that growth. We need to look for ways to keep property taxes in check while providing necessary services. We need creativity and a spirit of cooperation.

I believe I can help with that.

Last year I was elected to be the Chairman of the IAC 5th District Elected Officials and Wednesday of last week was my first meeting as the Chair.  We held the meeting in Soda Springs with elected officials from six different counties (Bingham, Power, Bannock, Caribou, Bear Lake, and Oneida) were there along with several of our State Legislators (Senator Jim Guthrie, Senator Mark Harris, Rep. Randy Armstrong) and representatives from Senator Risch & Crapos offices.  A huge thanks to our host the Conda Itafos mine for allowing us to use their conference space. We had a great meeting and discussed:
* Redistricting issues
* Counties proposed ARPA fund projects
* Issues with Property Taxes and the HB386 that was passed last year.
* Regional 911 discussion
* Regional Emergency Management  It was great to see the counties come together and discuss solutions to the issues we face. We have a great relationship with our surrounding counties and look forward to many more profitable discussions.Image attachment
