Latest News from Lora
A proven leader for Chisago County, Lora Walker is committed to providing responsible leadership, guiding Chisago County into the future with vision, while respecting it's heritage.
We should seek to develop; not just grow in size. A delicate balance of affordable homes, provision of services to residents, reliable roads and accessible bridges, increased local employment, schools and retail, are all key to a successful, vibrant community. A community our children can look forward to living in 25 years from now. Working for the common good, as your Commissioner, I will continue to advocate for a community that is balanced and sustainable.
We don't often talk about our County's financial position. I feel we must meet citizen's needs without taxing them out of their homes. I understand the impact of taxes on families and businesses and the importance of government spending within its means, and have worked hard toward that goal.
My work led the way with NO county levy increases 6-years in a row and tax levy DECREASES the past 2-years! My service on the County Budget Committee produced strong fiscal management resulting in our county bond rating being upgraded twice in recent years, saving many thousands of dollars in bond interest payments.
I have supported fiscal policies that cut waste, prioritized needs, and fulfilled State and Federal mandates. We deserve action-oriented, independent leadership; I believe I offer that leadership.
