Nathan Green, Republican

For Washington County Commissioners

For Washington County Commissioners

July 13, 2006

Nathan Green, 42, a Republican, said he wants to ease residents' tax burdens by helping attract new jobs to Washington County.

"As a county commissioner, I would like to be a champion for Washington County as far as attracting new business to the county," said Green, who is among 24 candidates seeking five seats on the Washington County Board of Commissioners.

Green, of 17615 Homewood Road, is general manager for McDonald's Corp. in Frederick, Md. He said he would like to bring businesses to fill the county's vacant lots and buildings. He said he believes the county could attract high-tech jobs in the computer and automotive fields.

The county must work with developers to find ways to upgrade the infrastructure as the county grows, Green said. Developers should shoulder some of the burden of growth, rather than forcing taxpayers to pay more in "an already overtaxed system," Green said.

A lifelong Western Maryland resident, Green said the county also should work to make sure the area's agricultural heritage is respected. Attracting jobs, increasing the tax base, developing a plan to address the needs of the county's growing number of seniors and education are among his highest priorities, he said.

"I've been in business 26, 27 years. I understand how to manage a business and keep it profitable," Green said. "You have to believe in your business, you have to believe in your county."
