Opportunity for Our Families

Working with the Home Builders Association and the “Build My Future” initiative, Rusty has helped provide career opportunities and guidance to many Greene Co. residents. As a Greene Co. commissioner, Rusty will work with area businesses to expand this career initiative to more industries.

Affordable Housing, Affordable Taxes

For residents to prosper, they must have not only access to good jobs, but affordable housing that allows families to also put food on the table, while saving for the future. Keeping housing affordable, means also keeping government affordable – taxes must be kept in check and wasteful government spending eliminated.

Restoring Trust, Getting the Job Done!

Rusty excels at coalition building, bringing together his clients and vendors from diverse industries to achieve a common goal on time and on budget. It’s those same management skills he will bring to the county commission – working toward a common goal with commonsense and respect for all parties involved.
