I am proud of the progress Franklin County has made over the past 16 years. With the state’s help, we are remaking a large section of downtown and added a new state building along the East-West Connector. Economically, we have consistently ranked among the top micropolitan areas IN THE NATION when measuring new or expanding industrial development projects. In 2017, we made the top 10, highlighting just how business friendly we are.

I have a long record of working with our local leaders and across the aisle in the General Assembly to make sure Franklin County has its fair share and that we maximize every public and private dollar invested in our community. We have come a long way, but I believe we have the potential to do even more. I am convinced even better days lie ahead.
