• VOCAT (Vocational and Technical) facility (coupled with developing a plan for county/school/college facility upgrades).

• Water/sewer infrastructure (including a sewer system study)

• Transportation advocacy (including U.S. 221A straightening, petitioning South Carolina to complete U.S. 221 near Chesnee, reroute Charlotte Road off-ramp on U.S. 221, the U.S. 221/Lauren Hill bi-section, and advocating for an Interstate 74 corridor in Rutherford County).
