Greetings, my name is Jackfruitism, and I’m running for County Executive for the second time.
You can find my Experience below. (resume attached)
My plans are similar to those of last time, enforcing the rules equally upon everyone, and I do understand that my last term had some turmoil, but I am going to come into office with a better approach, should I be granted a second term by the State of Firestone.
I’d like to continue the work that was being done on the County Chamber of Commerce, and be more involved in businesses through that avenue.
Additionally, I plan on continuing the work that was done to improve relations within departments and county government, I understand that some of the decisions I made posed damage to the relationships, but I will do all that I can to continue to develop them if I am elected.
Currently the vast majority of all functions within the County are up to par, and that is something that I have been proud to do my best to assist with serving the last few County Executive’s either as Press Secretary, or as their Chief of Staff, I am not 100% okay with the County Council activity though, and that’s not to say it is their fault, but I’d like for them to have more to do, so I’d like to find a way to get more legislation proposed, but I do not yet have a plan.
My service in the County has extended past several positions within the administration, including Press Secretary, (Deputy) Chief of Staff, and ultimately County Executive.
I have served in the County Sheriff’s Office, something that I very much enjoyed, and gained important knowledge, and experience from
While undoubtedly, it’s important to consider the opinions of your constituents, some of those people working in the agencies you are responsible for the oversight of, are your constituents as well.
And when running for office, that is a bid to serve everyone, not just those who elected you, and that does include taking the concerns of those who work in agencies in the County, or wherever else you may be serving seriously.
As a Former Official of the outgoing administration, I’ve gotten a gist of the standing employees have on the current departments, and their respective administrative figures, giving me a good insight as to what courses of action if any would be necessary, and what to improve on from the outgoing County Executive’s work.
I have functionally served in every municipality within the County, I was Mayor of Arborfield, I’ve served as every city’s Press Secretary. And I have served in every city council, giving me a nudge of experience and insight as to the function of municipalities and what I can do to help.
Additionally, I’ve held monumental roles, primarily, I am a 7 term Congressman currently serving as a State Senator, and I have held several other roles within the State Government, also giving me a plethora of knowledge into government.
I have faith in my own convictions, and I am positive that there are multiple qualified candidates running in this election, which in a way makes me happy knowing that there are people also interested in benefiting the County.
I plan on continuing supporting the development, and oversight of the Stapleton County Port Authority, and assisting the Chief in any way that is necessary, and any way that I can.
I plan to base my administration, if elected, primarily on major administrative decisions with as much rational public insight as I can.
