Recognizing their invaluable service and sacrifice, she pledges to actively engage in securing any available funding, resources, and tools necessary to ensure public safety, as well as their well-being.

Environmental Stewardship

Recognizing the importance of preserving Lee County’s natural beauty and resources, Cochran is committed to protecting the environment and safeguarding Lee County’s endangered waterways. She understands the critical role of environmental conservation in sustaining the local economy and quality of life. Cochran understands that tourism is a partner in protecting what we love about our region - from its unique environment to its history and culture. According to the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, the tourist industry employs 1 of every 5 people. With approximately 4.5 million visitors a year, the revenue generated in our area is estimated to be $4 billion. The tourism industry is the primary economic contributor to Lee County, but the added benefit is the quality of life to which it contributes.
