Rick Jansons is seeking the position of Benton County commissioner. I have known Rick for several years and he has always been honest, reliable and hard working. Rick has proven to be interested in the issues that people he represents feel are important. He listens to all views and asks in-depth and thought-provoking questions. He makes well-thought-out decisions after investigating the issues.
Rick's appreciation for Benton County is exemplified by his position on critical issues of the county. He is an advocate of public safety, wanting to ensure that elected officials realize and accept responsibility for the safety of county residents no matter what the scenario.
Rick has strong feelings concerning a crisis response center. The county needs a consolidated center to address individuals with mental health issues as well as addressing the need for a drug court to provide a venue for the right professionals and legal personnel to assess and respond to these complex issues.
