Gloria’s Position on Issues

Gloria Rodgers’ main focus while continuing to serve on County Council is to further the programs and plans that promote economic vitality for our County.

She strongly believes in new job creation and the expansion of businesses already located here. However, research abroad to bring new and entrepreneurial business to the area is important for technological advances. Building a strong economy for job growth is essential.

Gloria prefers to use common sense solutions to address government problems and will work diligently to attain the right results. She is a convincing believer in protecting values and strengthening families, and to that end will always work hard to promote and support legislation that will further these goals.

Proper budgeting and deficit reduction are necessary in today’s world, and Gloria will continue to fight to keep taxes at bay, support initiatives to reduce spending and keep an eye on unnecessary spending.
