Carver County is the fastest-growing county in Minnesota and is expected to grow by another 50% over the next 20 years. Carver County Commissioners have a significant impact on the quality of life of our families. Together, we can prepare for a future that honors our past.

What does a Carver County Commissioner do?

Carver County Commissioners govern county activities that include the adoption of the annual budget, passing ordinances, setting policy, and hiring and supervising the County Administrator. Approximately one-third of our property taxes fund the county budget to maintain the physical infrastructure of roads, parks, trails, and facilities, as well as the following services: CareerForce, Construction Projects & Studies, Elections, the Environmental Center, Income Support, Land Records & Vitals, Library, License & Service Centers, Mental Health Resources, Parks & Recreation, Property Information, Public Health, Public Safety, and Transit. The Board of Commissioners is broken into five districts; District 1 represents Chaska W3 & W4 and Chanhassen P5 & P6.

Why I'm running for Carver County Commissioner representing District 1

I believe that leadership is not just about what you do; it’s also about how you make decisions. It’s time for leaders to represent the people and to be held accountable. As a 20-year resident of Carver County, I care about our community and plan to serve by:

My Priorities

My highest priorities are to prepare for inevitable growth while honoring the rich history of Carver County. I will work to:

Shape Our Future

The landscape of our community is changing, and it’s time we prepare for the future. The Carver County Board needs to engage the community and partner with our cities and townships to:

Stabilize Taxes

Rapid growth puts a strain on resources, and rising taxes threaten the lifestyle of our families. Chaska and Chanhassen represent nearly half the population of Carver County and shoulder the heaviest tax burden. We need to partner with the business community and city leaders to:

Expand Mental Health Services

Mental health is often the tipping point for broken relationships, job loss, food insecurity, homelessness, and crime. The whole family struggles when someone suffers from mental health challenges. I believe we need to partner with healthcare professionals, non-profit organizations, schools, and public safety officers to:

Carver County is the fastest growing county in the state of Minnesota and we need leadership who understand the changing needs of our community. As a mother, owner of a leadership development business and 13 year member of the ECC School Board, I offer a perspective that is currently not represented on the Carver County Board of Commission. I am passionate about serving this community, and will work to:

As Carver County Commissioner I will be accessible and accountable to the community by communicating the decisions and actions of the county board and holding office hours to stay on top of concerns bubbling up in the community.

We need energetic, collaborative leaders to keep Carver County a great place to live, work, & play!

Some of my accomplishments on the Eastern Carver County School Board include:

  • Developed long-range facilities plan including funding and opening Carver Elementary, ECC Dome and Pool and land purchase for future elementary school.
  • Creation and implementation of strategic plan that focuses on increasing academic achievement.
  • Implemented pay for performance for teachers and 1:1 student to device ratio to support personalized learning curriculum
 

I am a leadership development consultant and spent 20 years at a Big 4 Consulting firm
helping leaders achieve their strategic goals. I bring people together, identify the root
cause of problems, develop and implement solutions then measure results.

I enjoy the many amenities that Carver County has to offer. You may see me at the golf course, on a bike path, walking my dog, at church, on the pickleball court, at the Chaska Curling Center, or at Life Time Chanhassen. If you see me out and about, please stop to say “Hi”—I would love to hear your story.

I appreciate your support of my run for District 1 Carver County Commissioner!
