Priorities

EDUCATION

  • Invest in our school buildings to bring them up to 21st-century standards. As the 4th largest school system in the state, we’re lagging behind in terms of investing in our children.

  • Push for a school bond on the ballot in 2026, instead of the current 2028 schedule. Costs will only continue to go up, and we have facilities that need critical funding now–not in 4 years, or beyond. (We can’t afford to wait.).

  • Improve access to Pre-K. 

EMERGENCY

  • Our own County Medical Director, Joey Hundley, has concerns about the level of care provided through our Emergency Services. We have less experienced and fewer paramedics–we currently have 52 vacancies for paramedics, with a vacancy rate that’s risen steadily over the last 3 years. This leaves us vulnerable in the event of a major emergency.

  • Gun violence is a public health emergency. We need to work on preventing gun violence in Forsyth County by implementing community-led public safety strategies.  

PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT

  • Schedule County Commissioner meetings later in the day, after work–instead of at 2 p.m.–ensuring that meetings are accessible to a wider range of residents and stakeholders.

 

  • Hold County Commissioner town halls more regularly to meet with constituents and do a better job of communicating with the public. (The median age in Forsyth County is just over 37, so better, more relevant social media is essential.

  • Create a resident liaison position.
