Candidate's Key Issues

Key Issue 1

Stop wasteful NSSD spending. The current NSSD spent over $50,000,000 on foreign built incinerator. That has been proven to produce toxic waste. I will eliminate these expenditures and and be a fiscal watch dog against further abuse.

Key Issue 2

Hire more local employees instead of out of state contractors.

Key Issue 3

Develop new practices and procedures for disposing of NSSD waste sludge from the plants.
