In the new year, Mattingly hopes to focus on health issues in Daviess County as well as continuing cooperating with all officials. He says cooperating should be the norm.
"We take a business approach," said Mattingly, "and we look at every issue from a standpoint of a return on taxpayer dollars. When you take that business approach, realizing that county government is not a business but that you can certainly use business principles in the operation."
Mattingly says he believes the future is bigger and brighter for Daviess County.
