"I support the wise use of resources; that use may be preservation of scarce resources such as saline wetlands and tall grass prairies. We should strive to maintain the rural nature of the District. We need to minimize erosion and runoff and maintain high water quality. A guiding tenet for scarce resources should be what do we have and how do we use them wisely rather than what do we need and where are we going to get them. As we use resources, we must do so that we pass on those resources in good stead to our children and grand children."

"The mission of the Lower Platte South NRD is extremely important to the citizens both within our District and outside.

We have an inherent responsibility to future generations to excel in these areas. At the same time, we must ensure financial prudence to the District taxpayers. We can't "be all things to all people", rather we need to prioritize programs and provide adequate funding for same."
