Jonathan is passionate about protecting Wake County’s natural landscape and cultural heritage. “I want to conserve Wake County’s natural beauty and breathtaking landscape. Whether it’s running/walking in the greenways, fishing, canoeing, and swimming in our various waterways, or just enjoying the incredible food grown by our own farmers, Wake County has so much to offer. I feel that serving as a Soil and Water Supervisor is a good way for me to help preserve these wonderful treasures.”
