Economic Development

I will strive to maintain a business friendly environment for job growth, remove unnecessary bottle necks to improve economic development activity, and support our largest job-making businesses such as agriculture, timber, building materials and our rich mineral industry.

Over regulation of local business must not be allowed at county level.  The state and federal government already have more than enough business hindering regulations!  I will work to streamline the permitting process for business start-ups and economic development wherever possible reducing unnecessary and needless rules and regulations. Work to promote the county’s industrial and commercially zoned land for economic development in the county, outside of Grants Pass.
