  • Serving as president of the Britton Economic Development Corporation that has attracted several manufacturers to Britton. 
  • Starting a community theater.
  • Refurbishing dilapidated buildings into business and apartment units. 
  • Recruiting medical professionals to practice and live in Britton.
