Steve takes the long view. A father and former lineman, he knows just how hard rural parents work to give their kids a future. And how often that future drives young adults far from home for better opportunities.
With realistic school board budgets to help kids excel, public works that support the everyday needs of working families, and an economic agenda that brings the jobs of the future to our area, Steve has a vision of Warren County where we all can thrive together.
