Hundreds of Licking County residents rely on Licking County Transit Services to provide transportation to work, health care and numerous other activities in their lives. I am chairman of the Licking County Transit Board and directly involved in seeing the service is safe, efficient and economical, given our limited funding.
Providing resources to Law Enforcement supports their mission of ensuring the safety of Licking County residents and businesses. I will continue to work to make sure county officers are prepared to address issues including mental health challenges and the fallout from illegal drug use with care and compassion.
Strategic planning for long-range economic and residential development is vital as Licking County prepares for Intel to begin construction of its microchip manufacturing site. The county must work together with townships, cities and villages to design plans that work for the growth of industry and housing.
