In my previous role as CEO of a local not for profit mental health and aging services organization I had the opportunity to work closely with Linn County Supervisor Ben Rogers on a number of issues over several years. I have always found Ben to be a proactive leader in addressing critical and complex mental health, disability, substance abuse and aging issues in Linn County. He truly cares about all residents of Linn County and works to assure that any necessary resources are available and provided in the most cost effective and efficient manner.
Ben understands the value of collaboration and community partnerships, and combines a dedication to improving the quality of life for all residents of Linn County with a fiscally responsible approach. I believe him to be a tremendous asset to all of us as a Linn County Supervisor with a demonstrated record of accomplishment.
