Thoughts about Sussex County:
"As a lifelong resident of Sussex County who still lives on the farm where I was born and raised, I recognize the importance of the people, the values and the traditions of Sussex County. Our future success depends on protecting that way of life – by keeping taxes low and preserving property rights while attracting new jobs and encouraging business to grow. I believe that will make Sussex County a positive place for our children to live and raise their families."
