Philosophy: There are numerous areas of responsibility that affect the overall quality of life throughout Dearborn County, and it is the responsibility of everyone in County government to insure that the citizens are receiving the best possible return for their dollar. As our population continues to grow, and the volume of people who are either visiting or passing through our county increases, public safety must be a prime concern. This not only involves roads and traffic flow, but also involves law enforcement, the court system, and many related functions. In addition, growth and all related infrastructure must be addressed, in order to provide for an orderly, fair and balanced expansion, with the least impact on individual rights, while maintaining and improving upon the natural, rural beauty that draws people to Dearborn County.
