MESSAGE FROM GARY
I have worked hard on behalf of the citizens and communities of District 3 and have been a strong voice for fiscal discipline. I will continue to fight to make sure your hard-earned tax dollars are well spent.
Washington County has the 2nd lowest tax rate in the metro area and is one of only 50 counties in the whole nation (less than 2%) to receive a AAA bond rating from both Standard & Poor's and Moody's. I will work to continue to keep the tax burden low on families and businesses, while maintaining the quality of life and services we have come to expect living in the county.
I have forged positive relationships with local, state, and federal leaders, gaining support for the St. Croix River Crossing and funding for the popular Brown's Creek State Trail. I also built consensus to purchase the Aiple Property preserving a half a mile of pristine river frontage that will be turned into a public park.
My district covers a large area of Washington County and the people who live and work here have a diverse set of interests and concerns. It has been my honor to serve them and I look forward to building on the relationships I've developed.
I have received overwhelming support and endorsements from the citizens, community leaders, and legislators. In fact, all 12 mayors and town board chairs in District 3 have endorsed me. It's been such a privilege to serve the residents of Washington County. Working together we can meet the challenges ahead and continue to make Washington County one of the best places to live and work in all of Minnesota.
