This is a path that we walk together toward a common goal. Opinions may differ, approaches may vary and we may not always agree, but we have a collective commitment, even in difficult times, to remain true to the mission, keep our eye on the vision, and make values based decisions to meet the goals and objectives of the County’s strategic plan.
