"I believe in open and accessible government. My philosophy is we should make every effort to anticipate problems before a crisis occurs and to encourage early involvement by the public. If people are given the chance to be heard and are treated fairly, better decisions will be made and there will be less polarization in the community." Kilkenny said.
"A smaller board is going to require supervisors to be even more dedicated, competent, and willing to work hard to represent the new larger districts. I accept that responsibility."
"I believe my experience and education will allow me to effectively analyze and address the tough financial and policy issues facing the County. I look forward to the opportunity to serve." Kilkenny said.
