Meet Craig Kenworthy, Candidate for County Council
Craig Kenworthy, Candidate for County Council
Craig's Top Priorities I. Providing our law enforcement agencies with the resources required to maintain law and order in our county.
II. Work with the Commissioners to maintain the county's infrastructure including increasing access to broadband internet throughout the county.
III. Increasing access to recreational opportunities by securing and developing park land throughout the county.
"I would like to see more money spent on quality of life issues. As the President of the County Park Board, I have seen the effects of additional recreational opportunities. In my opinion, our parks are underfunded. Porter County ranks in the lower 20% of per capita funding when compared with other County Park Systems through out the state. We need to find funding to increase our investment in our County Parks system." -Craig Kenworthy
