Rosenbaum laid out his vision of service, stating, “My commitment to our citizenry is simple and straightforward. I am committed to tight management of expenses, no increases in tax rates, and a prudent and responsible financial profile for our county. I believe that there is a need for a fresh perspective on the council, and that my supervisory role in the profession I work in will serve our residents well. I stand for honesty, integrity, independence, responsibility, and accountability, and, if elected, I intend to represent my constituents with an open door and an attentive ear.”
