Rod believes it's time to start with a fresh approach to solving our county's challenging issues. His skills and experience are essential to improve how our county leadership collaborates, operates and interacts with residents.
As a statesman, his record as Mayor of Highland is one of action on issues that most would shy away from. Rod has a passion for tackling problems head on finding workable solutions through communication and collaboration with elected leaders and residents: in person, on the phone, and on social media.
A few of the difficult problems Rod has tackled include: tax and land-use issues, public safety, road improvements, and water conservation. All of these can be very difficult and emotionally charged that require trust, patience and a listening ear.
Rod has a long list of accomplishments during his term in office and while as mayor, he could take the credit, he prefers to let others have the spotlight believing as Ronald Reagan, “It is surprising how much you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit.”
