Since adolescence Bill has believed and advocated that the government’s role is to promote, protect, and enhance the lives of ALL residents, not just the rich and powerful. He seeks to create opportunity for all instead of cronyism. In his role as County Clerk he has worked to create more access to vote by expanding drop sites. Bill performed the first same-sex marriage in Marion County to personally ensure the process was smooth and the moment was special. As a community member Bill is highly involved. He gives his time, money, and self (literally, in blood donations) to supporting positive change in society. As County Commissioner he seeks to expand his ability to do so.
