Food service administrator,
Washington County Detention Center
Seeking second term
“It has been a pleasure to serve the citizens of the 7th District. I have tried to do my best, and I would like to continue at their pleasure,” Ford said. “Commissioners need to improve our communication skills and work together to do what’s right for Washington County. It’s not about taking sides.”
1. What are the priorities of a county commissioner?
“One of the main priorities is to continue to be fiscally responsible. Other priorities, within our means, are economic development and education for our children.”
2. How will you prepare for committee meetings and meetings of the full commission?
“You have to prepare by studying and reviewing the resolutions that will come before the commission, listening to both sides of the coin, and developing an opinion based on what’s best for the citizens of Washington County.”
