Must NOT limit input to only those who have a financial stake in the outcome of issues before the BOCC and MUST study issues and gather information from all sides;

MUST be respectful to constituents, value their input, and understand that being a County Commissioner means representing ALL people in Lee County, NEVER condescending to or patronizing those who have the courage to speak up;

Must NOT make back room deals with colleagues, special interests, the County Manager, or the County Attorney and be committed to transparency, accountability, and following Sunshine Laws.
