Committed to investing in public schools

In June of 2019, I was a strong supporter of Dr. Johnson's increased budget for Hamilton County Schools. Dr. Johnson's budget would have added many needed support staff for teachers and provided a 5% raise for all of our educators.

Expanding our senior tax relief program

Ahead of the budget vote in 2019, I proposed two ways to alleviate the effect than any potential tax increases would have on our seniors. 


Ed Johnson Memorial

In March of 2019, we passed a resolution to contribute $100,000 towards completion of the Ed Johnson Memorial.

Sheriff's Hammond's FUSE program is a critical initiative that helps mentally inmates break the cycle and build healthy and productive lives. In January of 2019, I proposed a resolution to match $120,000 of private funds that were raised for the project.
