Long term challenges at this time in our nation revolves around healthcare and the economy recovery process. Determining the safe recovery for this state and country will have to be a personal and collaborative effort. Everyone involved must be represented at the table. One person will not have all the answers and it should not be expected. It must come from the bottom up, to include those that are suffering the most. Families, fragile, homeless, small business, large chains. No one is exempt from the disease or the cure.

What is your solution to that challenge?

A solution comes from a carefully plotted plan of action which will bend as the direction changes.
