Under his leadership as chairman, working collaboratively with his fellow Commissioners, the County has achieved some important milestones and accomplishments: the County has reduced its workforce by nearly 10%, strategically invested in technology to improve efficiencies, produced budget surpluses in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and recognized other important operational efficiencies and savings, while still making investments in core county services. Of particular interest has been the re-purposing of all county economic development programs and agencies under the new initiative ‘Bucks 2 Invest.’ Additionally, the County completed one of its largest capital projects in the construction of a new Justice Center and is currently renovating the existing county courthouse into an administration building, reducing the County’s footprint and overhead expenses.
