Keith's Top Priorities
RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE LEADERSHIP
We all want good leadership. We all want leaders who listen to us, make decisions with our best interests in mind, and take responsibility for their choices. Elected leaders should be held accountable when they violate their oath.
I will lead with a strong moral ethic and will stay within the scope of what a County Commissioner is supposed to do. I will make decisions with the best interests of the people of Manatee County in mind.
IMPROVEMENTS TO INFRASTRUCTURE
We all want communities that help us thrive. We all want our communities to support our day-to-day activities and be enjoyable for ourselves and our families.
I will advocate for more street lighting and sidewalks throughout the county and support common-sense infrastructure projects that enhance our quality of life. I will support plans and initiatives to alleviate the increasing traffic issues that plague our county streets.
SUPPORT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
We all want to feel safe in our communities. We all want the law and order necessary to protect our dignity, rights, and safety.
I will support and protect the needs of the community by promoting partnerships between law enforcement and the community throughout the county to increase understanding, trust, and cooperation. I will support our Sheriff's budget so that the department has the necessary resources to carry out their duties.
