As a real estate lawyer and CPA, Rebecca has brought experience and common sense to ACHD that has allowed and caused ACHD to function more like a business, less like government, and to complete much needed capital projects more efficiently with shorter construction times.  She has also been a strong advocate against raising taxes.  Rebecca and her fellow commissioners have declined the allowable tax increases provided under state law and have kept the amount of property taxes that goes to ACHD at the same level for the last 4 years in a row.”
