It is essential for both economic growth and quality of life that enhancements are made to Putnam County’s infrastructure. Roads, bridges, port facilities, the airport, railways, communications, and water/wastewater are utilized by residents, visitors, and businesses each and every day. Coordination at all levels is vital to ensure that Putnam County receives the necessary funding to improve infrastructure.
Putnam County is blessed with a strategic location, bountiful natural resources, and several large employers. In order to grow the economy, we must keep our crime rates headed down and keep our school ratings moving up. We also must prioritize infrastructure investments and incentivize businesses to relocate to Putnam County through beneficial fiscal policy.
Improvements in public safety have lead to lower crimes rates and faster response times for first responders. The Putnam County Commission’s proper funding of law enforcement, fire/rescue, and emergency management will help keep our residents safe.
Efficient, Effective Government
Citizens deserve to have a government which serves them effectively and efficiently. Putnam County government should continue to keep taxes low, expenses down, productivity high, and prioritize customer service.
